Create .dat file for manual mesh

    • jbece23

       For my project, I have a simple beam bending application. I created a mesh, applied boundary conditions and assigned materials. After solving for the solution in the solver directory files a ds.dat file is produced. I then saved this file and imported it into ansys workbench using the external model, and got exactly what I had made. 

      I am trying to develop a matlab script that will follow the format of the .dat file, but will only create a mesh, without assigning any materials or BC's. I have tried to delete sections of the ds.dat file and importing it, but this leads to workbench to open an empty workspace without a geometry. I looked at the ansys manual and looked at the nblock and eblock command, but it is ambiguous and I do not understand the formatting. 

      Is what I am doing possible? I found this forum from 2016, this is very similar to what I am trying to do, but it does not explain enough (https://forums.febirg/archive/index.php/t-1436.html) Any available resources would be appreciated. Thank you!
