Export Mesh Nodes To Text File

Hello Everyone,

 

Is there a way to export the mesh nodes (X,Y,Z) to a text file?

 

I am setting up a non linear analysis and need to insert a radial force at an edge. If I use the standard way, which would be to change the coordinate system, the model does not converge.

 

Therefore, I'd like to use the loads from file functionality.

 

Thanks,

The only place that nodal coordinates are shown in when you select the nodes in the Results environment, right-click, and choose "Inquire Results". You can then save the "results" to a text file.

I though that would be the only way. Not so much of a table format, though.

Regex is the answer then...
