Is there any way to import External Data at different time steps and into different deformed shapes?

      Hello,

      I'm trying to import Temperature profiles into a rod deformed at times t0,t1,t2, respectively using the External Data module.

      The rod is deformed as shown in Figure below.

      You can control the time using the data view of the imported load.

      Thank for your reply I know this option but it is used for controling the time steps only. When we want to import data from External Data, these data will be imported before starting the calculation . Thus, those data can be applied ONLY into the INITIAL shape of the wire.

      One workaround would be you can import the temperature in steady state model and then export the csv file. But for this export, use node numbers instead of xyz location.
