Dear all, I am working right now on a topology optimization based on a tcl script. It is important to me to identify certain nodes in order for my load cases. Lets say I have in my script something like *createnode 0 0 0 0 0 0 *createnode 0 1 0 0 0 0 and then a section where I want to apply a load to it. I did it like this: *createmark nodes 1 1(that 1 is the node id) *loadcreateonentity_curve nodes 1 1 1 0 0 150 0 0 150 0 0 0 0 0 The problem I have is, that the block with the createnode part can vary so the Ids are not always the same. I did not find a way to include a specific ID in the *createmark line in order to work with it later.... it does more or less: id: 1,2,3,4 as you progress creating your nodes. I thought on selecting my nodes differently, maybe with *createmark nodes 1 "on plane" but I did not have sucess there either. How would you solve this problem? I must work with specific nodes I create but te nodes can vary so either I have to renumber it in a way I know which id it has, maybe based on coordinates or assign specific node Ids. Thanks in advance for discussing this topic with me, Best regards, Merula
HI all, I am creating a node using the command " *createnode x y x " When i switch on the node number, it shows as 1. Is it possible to create a node using command with specific node number (say 501) If so, please let me know the command..
