Exporting a simulation across all time steps to csv

Question asked by Wang Wei Lee on Apr 2, 2015

Hi I am new to Solidworks and currently using Solidworks 2014 64 bit.


I intend to record the stress distribution on a surface over time as a CSV, so I can perform computations subsequently. I have setup the nonlinear simulation and have it running, but could not find out how to export stresses for all elements on a particular surface, and across time. The closest would be to manually list results for all nodes and repeat for each time step, which is not practical. Or should I place sensors for each element and record transient properties? What is the most efficient way to do this?
