Difficulties when exporting a FEM model from SolidWorks 2014 into .INP format

Question asked by Yosef Yoeli on Nov 8, 2015

When exporting a FEM model into the .INP format, I occasionally encountered the following two problems:

  1. The loads are not exported at all (there is no *STEP / *ENDSTEP section in the INP file).

  2. Although I select tetrahedral elements, the INP file may also contain: *ELEMENT,TYPE=C1D2.


One additional question

  1. Is it possible to define and export into .INP several load cases - this means that the .INP file has to contain several *STEP / *ENDSTEP sections?
