  1. Thank you for your comment. Unfortunately, having different materials within each component is essential in my case. Believe me "Life is not that Simple" How about if I have one component only with multiple materials. Do you think of a way or any exportable FE format that would list number of elements within each material? Best
  2. Hi, I have a model with multiple components that shares several materials/properties. I want to know the number of elements associated to each material/property within each component. For example, one component is made of 100 elements which are assigned to 22 different materials. I want to know how many elements within Mat1, Mat2, Mat3, etc. Right now I am doing this manually by isolating each material and counting displayed elements. But this takes long time and very tedious. Is it possible to automate this task by writing a TCL script or exporting a custom output file? It would be very nice if I can get something like: Mat1 Mat2 Mat3 Mat4 Matx Component1 10 9 50 0 XX Component1 15 55 4 22 YY Thanks, Mselim
  3. Nguyen: thanks for your reply. I will try it. Meanwhile, would you look at my post below and let me know if you have any suggestions? Thanks
  4. Hello, I have Abaqus file that contains material properties (anisotropic). I need to transform the anisotropic stiffness/compliance matrix to be aligned with a local coordinate system which match my experimental test direction. Please see the image below. The values shown in the image are the stiffness along global coordinate system. I need these values along the local coordinate system. What would be the easiest method to do this? Thanks
  5. Q.Nguyen: I am trying to use your script. I need more details please. I downloaded it and it is a .tbc file. How can I use it? Thanks
