You can use the record in the mechanical scripting console, and add the directional deformation , etc., and you will see the commands (e.g., AddDirectionalDeformation(), AddEquivalentStress(), etc.)

On how to het the max/min from these results, one can get that by:

equivalent_stress = ExtAPI.DataModel.Project.Model.Analyses[0].Solution.AddEquivalentStress()


Then export MaxVMSt to a csv file. Search the internet how to export there are many posts on that, e.g., :

Finally group is a bit hard, but not really needed in order to create the results, extract max/min and export these values.

If needed folders/groups look at the below link for an example that adds these results and puts them into a folder.

All the best
