How to find which node number corresponds to which joint?

    • Amirmkr
      In the following code, I can get the displacements of different joints, however, I don't know which node number corresponds to which joint. Using name selection, I can only show the geometry node numbers, not the joints node numbers.

      You can open the ds.dat file and check the pilot nodes associated with each joint. Also, all the details while the joint is created is written in the ds.dat file.
      To access the ds.dat file: Right Click on Solution -> Open Solver Files Directory and then you will see the ds.dat file.
