Rigid and kinematic coupling automation

Recommended Posts

Dear Sir,

Is there any way of applying rigid (rbe2 spider) to all the holes of a component at a time? If I can import node data to python or matlab then I can find all the cylinders and the hole and can apply hole. ( By analyzing the node coordinates and using circle equation to check if they lie in circle or not). Is there any way to import node data to python  or matlab to process further or is there any other way?
