Number of entities (10000 default) -file Scratch file name
Outputs file to an H3D file instead of to an hmresults file. The file includes model and results information that was translated. The model must contain geometry for it to be output to an H3D file. -noip (default off) turns off all processing of element integration point values. If you ask Abaqus to average values to element centroids, this option makes a considerable difference in the amount of memory needed. If you also specify a result type that is found on element integration points, and the translator comes across such a result during processing, it reports an error (default off).
-sv1, -sv2,..., -sv20
State variables were being treated differently for some element groups from others. For some element types, they were always included, and, for others, they were processed only if specifically listed, with the default listing all of them. Now, all are uniform. They are translated only if you requests them to be translated. Also, the translator used to allocate memory to process all 20 allowable state variables whether you asked for any or not. Now, you can turn them on individually, and use just the minimum memory necessary, or you can turn on the first N of them using -nsdv (default off).
-nsdv <number>
Turns on the first <number> state variables (max of 20). If you list both individual state variables and also the -nsdv option, the listed ones are the only ones processed. You can get complete compatibility with older versions by using "-nsdv 20". (default off).
In addition, the following parameters are also available when the results translation is not performed on the analysis machine and when the results file is binary. One of these parameters may need to be specified to indicate where the analysis result file was created.
