plot2coor

Reads nodal coordinates from d3plot at selected state for a node set. Possible replacement of matching *NODE cards in a keyword file.

The tool is used to read coordinates from the d3plot file for an arbitrary list or range(s) of nodes. This is useful to get the coordinates of nodes used by LS-DYNA after any transformation by *INCLUDE_TRANSFORMATION.

usage: plot2coor [options]

options:

-g ls-dyna d3plot file (geometry info)
Default: d3plot
-o output file with nodal coordinates
Default: "coordinates.plot"
-l file with list of nodes
-n node(s) list of nodes (eg 10,15,24) and/or
-n node-range range of nodes (eg 10-50)
-sort sort output nodes by number
(useful for femzip-plotfile)

Example:
% plot2coor -n 1-100,50 -n 5640
