Node connection information

      Hello, 


      I wanted to know if there is any way to get the information on nodes. I know that I can extract the location of the nodes, but I need to have the information on nodes connection. I read in the manual that the mesh contains the connectivity information. But how can I have it? (in .csv form maybe?)


      I have attached an image for your reference.


      I would be really grateful if anyone could help me in this regard.


      Thank you 


      With regards

      Hi, 


      I think there may be some scheme command for this ( I am not sure). 


      Can you please explain, why do you want it?

      Dear Keyur,


      I wanted to know if there is any way to know the connection of the nodes (e.g. For Element 1, it is linked by nodes 3,4,5 say. Element 2 is linked by nodes 4,6,7 say, then I know that these 2 elements could be near each other as "4" is common to both of the elements). So I wanted to have that information. Apparently, I found that one can write the connection of the nodes with the help of a UDF.


      Thank you 


      With regards

      Hi,


      Okay, I found out that there is no direct approach to get the node connectivity information. You have to write it down with the help of a UDF. 


       


      P.S. Please correct me if I am wrong, or anyone knows a way. That would be much better


      Thank you 


      With regards

      Hi, 


      Do you think maybe possibly sharing the UDF, I´m facing the same problem right now and honestly, I don´t have much experience in UDF. 


       


      Thank you
