Include external text file with Workbench mesh into APDL script

      Hello everyone,

      I am running a model from an APDL script. However, now that I want to create a more complex geometry, I am turning to ANSYS Workbench to create the mesh. By running the model once in Workbench, I get the element and node data from the ds.dat file. I copy this into an external .dat file. But now, I want to externally include this mesh into my original input file for APDL (where e.g. the material and boundary conditions are defined) so that the input file does not get too long.

      Therefore, I am searching for a command similar to INCLUDE, but I cannot find it in the Command Reference. Does anyone know how to do this?


      Kind regards,

      Do you want to add APDL mesh to the workbench mesh?

      Hi aniket,
      No actually the other way around. I want to add a workbench mesh into an APDL script.

      this should be possible by using /INPUT command. Please check that node IDs and element IDs are not same in both file.
