4RealSim welcomes you to attend a free Introduction to Abaqus Scripting with Python seminar.
Abaqus scripting with Python
Abaqus makes extensive use of Python; a powerful, object-oriented scripting language that is used widely by organizations throughout the world. Python has been embedded within the Abaqus software products. The language has been extended to include a rich set of commands that are well suited for the daily tasks of a finite element analyst. These extensions are referred to as the Abaqus Scripting Interface (ASI).
The Abaqus Scripting Interface may be used by the finite element analyst at many different levels. Scripts can be written as stand-alone utilities, or can be written to integrate the Abaqus products with other codes. At a basic level, scripts may be used to automate repetitive tasks such as the creation of results plots from a collection of output files. With some experience, users may actually extend the functionality of the Abaqus products. Advanced users may work with SIMULIA affiliates to customize the graphical user interface of the Abaqus interactive products (Abaqus/CAE and Abaqus/Viewer).
This seminar introduces the basic usage of the Abaqus Scripting Interface and Python’s syntax. It includes numerous hands-on demonstrations:
- Write simple scripts to automate pre- and postprocessing tasks and improve productivity
- Read and write data from/to the .cae and .odb files
- Understand and explore the Abaqus object model
- Troubleshoot and debug scripts
- Understand Python’s applicability as a powerful scripting language for a wide variety of tasks
- Interact with Python experts to discuss your challenges
Who Should Attend
We believe every Abaqus user should be familiar with the ASI. Productivity gains can be realized at many levels; from simple scripts that automate tedious tasks to large applications with custom user interfaces. This course is recommended for all Abaqus users who wish to improve their productivity using scripting.
