Model Export

Use the Export tool to export loadcases and variability studies.

Use the Export tool to export the prepared session to run analysis in OptiStruct. If a variability study is prepared, it can also be exported and processed using HyperStudy.
Before you export a model, all E-Lines of interest and a dynamic loadcase must exist in the model.
  1. From SnRD ribbon, Analyze group, select the Export tool from the Run tool group.

  2. Enter the file name.
  3. For Include File(s), select Preserve or Merge.
  4. Click Export.
  5. Browse and select the required folder.
    Note: During the solver file export, SnRD also exports E-Lines information to a CSV file. This file will be used in the post-processing of results.
    Tip: If you have not mapped material or GD&T data to E-Lines in the session, these can be manually updated in the CSV file after export and before post-processing.
    Restriction: If Include File(s) is set to Preserve, then all E-Lines and related information must be located main file. Post-processing is dependent on this.
    This will export the OptiStruct solver deck to the selected folder.
  • Model file(s) (.fem) along with a _preoutput.csv file are exported to the selected folder.
  • If Variability study is selected then, SnRD will also export the following:
    • .tpl file: Parametrized version of the model file.
    • .xml file: Study file containing HyperStudy setup.
