CAE

The Export, CAE command allows you to export your grid to a CAE solver of your choice.

The Export, CAE command allows you to export grid, boundary condition, and other solver data in the native format of the currently selected CAE solver. The supported CAE solvers are listed in in the table below and described in detail below. Press the button to show the table. The table also shows the attributes associated with each CAE solver: supported grid dimension (2D, 3D), supports volume conditions (VC), supports high-order elements (H-O), and files written out by the exporter (Files).
