How to export SolverDeck as .inp within tcl script

Recommended Posts

Hello Adriano, thank's for the reply. Your suggestions seems to be a perfect way for learning coding in Hypermesh. 


Yes, .inp is for Abaqus. I'm exporting the geometry from abaqus to do mesh refinements in Hypermesh and exproting it back to abaqus for applying loads and initializing a job.


I'm using the student version, which will change hopefully next week. Until then I can't manually export to abaqus. From documentation I guess it might be the




function. Is it also exporting information about the mesh?


Thank's for any advice

That's correct I can't. I will be able in a couple of weeks though. Regarding the situation we have limited workplaces in our universities institue, where a full licence is availble. Until then I'd like to prepare everything as far as I can in the student version.

only mesh will be exported:


something like this

*feoutputmergeincludefiles 0
*feoutputwithdata "D:/Program Files/Altair/2020/hwdesktop/templates/feoutput/abaqus/standard.3d" "C:/Users/adriano/Desktop/model.inp" 0 0 2 1 4
*clearmarkall 1

INP can have geometry inside (I don't know) but from Hypermesh you can only export FEM entities into INP for Abaqus.

In the inp file you have only two tables : connectivity and coordinate table.
