I'm trying to extract the participation factors of a structure as part of a modal analysis.
In the commands code, I create an array called "PF" of size [NumberOfModes x 7], which is used to store the frequency values and 6 participation factors (in each direction x,y,z,rotx,...) for all the modes that are needed.
When I open the results file I see that for all the modes, all the participation factors are stored only for the ROTZ direction regardless of the desired direction (x,y, etc...). The "PF" array contains [NumberOfModes x 1] frequencies, and [NumberOfModes x 6] which all contain the same Participation factors for ROTZ direction copied 6 times in a row.
How can I fix the problem?
If any additional information is needed please let me know.
The code I've been using is attached here:

May 24, 2021 at 12:14 pmSofiKSubscriberI'm sorry but your proposed code gives exactly the same results. The results contain only the results for ROTZ direction.
Any other methods to try?

May 24, 2021 at 12:36 pmMay 30, 2021 at 12:42 pmSofiKSubscriberIt worked once I cleared the generated results and restarted the analysis. I guess the software could not overwrite the results for some reason.
Thank you for your help!

Glad to be of help.
