Dear Vangelis,

We want to run set of checks from


Is there any direct way that we could write a script for grouping those CHECKS through ANSA script engine in v13.1.4?

Thanks & Regards,

In v13.1.5 you can use the script functions

def main()
free_nodes = CheckFree("visible");
If VISIBLE FREE nodes are found, it returns a matrix containing their pointers,
otherwise 0.

for checking Dependencies you need to use a newer version, v13.2.x
where there is a script function
p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; } CheckAndFixRigidDependencies

Default Ansa scripting aligning nodes to a curve

Hello members,

I created a curve with 2 points across a meshed plate. Then I selected the nearest nodes to the curve and aligned it with the curve.

I tried to automate the process using Ansa script. The program asks the user to select nodes on the mesh. It captures the nodes in a matrix, extract the coordinates in an array and then with CreateCurve function a curve is drawn.

For the alignment, I captured the NearestShell (function with same name) to these nodes and then the corresponding nodes in a matrix. These nodes were then aligned to the curve. However the results are satisfactory only when the nodes selected by the user are closely spaced.

Is there are a function or an algorithm which searches for the nearest nodes to a curve?? Thanking you all for your suggestions.
