FEA data exchange: UNV2X / X2UNV project
This project aims at developing a set of file conversion tools & libraries in order to facilitate the bi-directionnal exchange of FEA data between open-source CAE softwares.
The file format chosen here to create this basic data transfer layer is the I-Deas Universal File Format (also called UNV or UFF) that is allready widely used in both commercial & free CAE softwares.
To download the all the UNV2X scripts (unv2abaqus, unv2elmerunv, unv2impact etc...), you can download the "HelpersTools" package which contains all the specific scripts programmed for CAELinux: Proj:HelpersTools
updated UNV2GMSH & UNV2ABAQUS scripts: Media:unv2xUpd2.zip
WARNING!!! unv2abaqus.py needs to be fixed!!! The created Abaqus output file is missing line breaks in node set definitions after every eighth node number.
PS: A more detailed section should be written ... see CAELinux FEA interoperability discussion in the meantime.
