[problem] ICEM Scripting Loop to create points and Curves

Hi,
I have a problem while creating points and curves within these points. So far my script looks like that: 1 ic_undo_group_begin 2 ic_geo_new_family GEOM 3 ic_boco_set_part_color GEOM 4 ic_empty_tetin 5 for {set i 0} {$i<4} {set i [expr $i+1]} { 6 set x1_value [expr $i*2*0.04] 7 set x2_value [expr ($i*2+1)*0.04] 8 set point1_nr [expr $i*2] 9 set point2_nr [expr ($i*2)+1] 10 ic_point {} GEOM pkt$point1_nr $x1_value,0,0 11 ic_point {} GEOM pkt$point2_nr $x2_value,0,0 12 ic_delete_geometry curve names crv.$i 0 13 ic_curve point GEOM crv.$i {pkt$point1_nr pkt$point2_nr} 14 } Now to my problem: The script does not create the curve between the points (line 13). I have tried it without the variables for one curve. That worked perfectly. The source code looked like that: ic_curve point GEOM crv.01 {pkt1 pk2}. That is why i assume that the create curve command cannot handle the variables inside. Do you have any experience with that or do you know a workaround? Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi !
Okay so this answer may come a little over 2.5 years too late, but as your question still came on top of my google results: I found that for scripting in ICEM, the quotes {$MYVAR} do not allow for variable substitution. You should use "$MYVAR" instead, i.e.: ic_curve point GEOM crv.01 "pkt1 pk2" Thanks for the 'for loop' though, that was what I was looking for in the first place

Hi, Have some problem with scripting in ICEM aswell. I want to control the vertex numbers and change them, or find the vertex number in a specific coordinate. I have a vertex in point e.g (1,2,3) and want to extract the node number in this point. Do you know any code for that? There is a function called : ic_hex_select_nodes When using: [CODE] ic_hex_select_nodes 1 all m FLUID node_numbers [\CODE] All the node number associated to the FLUID part is returned, which is quite good. By changing "all" to inpoly and give the coordinates of a point it should be easy to select a node in a gives coordinate. I've tried: [CODE] ic_hex_select_nodes 1 inpoly {369.13875 211.52306 1.1669954e10} m FLUID node_numbers [\CODE] And there is node in this coordinate so it should work but the error message "Error: Error reading polygon coords" is given. Do you have any idea how to solve this or how to use ic_hex_select_nodes with inpoly command instead of all. Thank's for your help
