automate heat power assignment

Question asked by Thomas Tarter on Mar 10, 2019

I have a thermal model that requires up to 2900 separate heat power boundary conditions.  I use the FEA solver and the Flow solver, but this prolem is purely conduction, so I am using FEA.  First, split lines were made to define area for the 2900 powers, works fine and I can manually enter values for each splitline area created.  The problem is that manually entering 2900 heat powers to the areas is a huge time sink.  Also, the power table may change for different scenarios.

 

Is there a way to link the power table using a spreadsheet, macro, or API to apply the boundary conditions?  I have searched the web and SW help, customer portal, etc, but have not found a solution.
