This depends on where the information about the type of finite element is stored. In case of axisymmetric elements as example this information needs to be written by writeABAQUS into the calculix-input-file. Triangles are then CAX6-elements or CAX3-elements. If this information is only available in a python object, then I need to access this python object from inside c++. It would be of course much easier, if this information stays in a c++-object.bernd wrote:Why do you really need access to the python-objects to write out the mesh data ?
I started to learn c++ a little bit. The actual state is, that I made a c++ program outside of FreeCAD, that does what I want. It can find out element-faces which are not part of the surface of the solid. The next step is to integrate this program into writeABAQUS.bernd wrote:I have been playing with writeABAQUS too but I'm not able to do all my wishes in C++.
