Export FLD files using -batchextract

      I usually add E Quantity in Fields Calculator and export raw complex fields in FLD format for post processing. Is there a way to do that using -batchextract option? I am trying to automate my task and would like to avoid opening GUI everytime to export FLDs because of complexity of design. Help says batchextract only supports following: ExportProfile, ExportConvergence, ExportMeshStats, ExportSolnData, ExportCircuit, Update Reports, ExportToFile. I was wondering if my task belongs to one of the above mentioned category.

      I'm not sure, but if you are using version 2020R1, then there is a beta feature that will allow non-graphical script execution for all commands.  Go to the menu Tools > Options > General Options, and in the General category, click on the Beta options.  Check the option for "Non-graphical command execution".  Then, you can use any script using the "-RunScriptAndExit" command with "-ng" option.


      If you are using an earlier version, you can try to export fields with -batchextract option, but I don't know.  It would be feasible to create XY plots with field data for lines, planes, and more complicated families of field data, so that you can export any arbitrary .csv files of data, but depending on the workflow that could be more complicated than you need.

      Yes that is what I end up doing (using lines and plotting XY plots). It works alright for my level of complexity.


      I did not knew about "Non-graphical command execution". Very interesting feature, I will have to check it out.


      Thank you for your suggestions.
