susave

Mapdl.susave(lab='', fname='', fext='', fdir='', **kwargs)

Saves surface definitions to a file.

APDL Command: SUSAVE

Parameters
lab

Eight-character surface name.

fname

File name and directory path (248 character maximum, including directory). If you do not specify a directory path, the default is your working directory and you can use all 248 characters for the file name. The file name defaults to the jobname.

fext

File name extension (eight-character maximum). The extension defaults to “surf”.

fdir

Optional path specification.

Notes

The SUSAVE command saves surface definitions (geometry information)–and any result items mapped onto the surfaces–to a file.

Issuing the SUSAVE command has no effect on the database. The database remains unchanged.

Subsequent executions of the SUSAVE command overwrite previous data in the file.

To read the contents of the file created via the SUSAVE command, issue the SURESU command.
