EXODUS Interface

Overview of the EXODUS interface.

The EXODUS interface enables you to store a large amount of topological and result data in a binary format for finite element analysis.

In HyperMesh, the import and export of EXODUS files is supported in the EXODUS interface. An EXODUS file (*.ex, *.exo, *.ex2) can be read using the Import tab, and the finished model can be written using the Export tab.

EXODUS supports the following types of entities, which can be created from the Solver Browser:
  • Blocks (Component)
  • Control Cards
  • Coordinate Frames (System)
  • Functions (Curve)
  • Loads
  • Materials
  • Plots
  • Sets
  • TiedJoints (Group)
