ANSYS Mechanical allows you to specify settings for load steps one at a time. Most users don’t know that you can change settings for any combination of load steps using the selection of the load step graph. PADT’s Joe Woodward shows you how in this short but informative video.
A short video showing how ACT (ANSYS Customization Toolkit) can be used to change Default Settings for analyses done in ANSYS Mechanical. This is a very small subset of the capabilities that ACT can provide. Stay tuned for other videos showing further customization examples.
The example .xml and python file is located below. Please bear in mind that to use these “scripted” ACT extension files you will need to have an ACT license. Compiled versions of extensions don’t require any licenses to use. Please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are wondering how to translate this example into your own needs.
