Possible to source tcl file with arguments

I would like to run GiD from the command line and have a tcl script act on it as follows: gid -n -t tcl_script_path Unfortunately my script also needs 2 command line arguments. So I tried this gid -n -t "tcl_script_path arg1 arg2" Which didn't work. Then I tried to source it from within Gi...

Re: Getting element face based on face nodes (quadratic tetrahedron)

I just found them by making 1 quadratic element in GiD and then assigning various face_element conditions to it to determine the local element enumeration. For quadratic elements the faces are numbered as follows: Face 1 --> nodes 1 2 3 5 6 7 Face 2 --> nodes 2 3 4 6 9 10 Face 3 --> nodes 1 3 4 7 8 ...

Getting element face based on face nodes (quadratic tetrahedron)

Hello I know from previous posts that the local numeration of element faces for a 4-noded tetrahedron are as follows: 1-2-3 2-4-3 3-4-1 4-2-1 I would like to ask what is the local numeration for a quadratic (10-noded) tetrahedron? I have been looking throught the documentation for this but cannot fi...

List of all GiD conditions/materials in project

I would like to ask if it is possible to automatically extract all the used conditions and materials for a specific project using tcl or other programmatic method. Currently I have to click through every single condition and display it for every project I have and this is not fun.

Output .dat file for only layer of interest

I have a question regarding the use of layers in GiD. I have two layers in which I am preparing different geometries with different conditions and materials. I would like to output the .dat file of each layer independently. When I click on calculate it currently outputs a "mix" of both lay...

Re: How to use Ramdebugger?

Ok then. It is clear that scripts cannot be run directly from the debbugger. They must be run from the GiD command line. Thanks for the information. I have a follow up question. Is it possible to test tcl commands using an interpreter type interface? For instance I would like to run somthing like: G...

Re: How to use Ramdebugger?

Is there a way to launch my tcl script from within the debugger instead of doing -np- source {mytclfile.tcl} every time? It is cumbersome if I have to go and browse for the path of the tcl file I want to run every time?

How to get mesh criteria from existing GiD file

Let's say I have meshed a GiD file a long time ago and I don't remember the mesh criteria I used. Is there a way to get them for every line, surface and volume in the geometry? Thanks.

How to use Ramdebugger?

I have a tcl script that I would like to run on GiD. I go to Data>ProblemType>Debugger and then open my tcl file in RamDebugger. Then I click on begin/continue execution (the "play" symbol) but nothing happens. I have a workaround by using -np- source {File.tcl}, but I would really like to...

Output variable values using WarningBox

I am working on a bas file and I need to output some information to 'debug' it I'd like to do something like this: *WarningBox NodesCoord(1,real) *NodesCoord(2,real) *NodesCoord(3,real) Instead of outputing the nodal values I am simply getting the text of the command itself. How do I get the values ...
