Hi,

I try to make automation for my simple pipe geometries. I have a simple pipe that has a different diameter at the inlet and outlet. I try to find the inlet and outlet sections of the pipe using the Spaceclaim scripting. By the way, I put a 3D point in the center of the inlet section of each pipe geometry to find out which is the inlet or outlet face. Maybe, this will be helpful.

So, how can I write a script to find inlet and outlet sections of pipes? Thanks!

I guess no one can understand what you want to do..

But i think, you dont need to find that surfaces for every parameter study.

You just have to use "parametric dimension" if you do that you can solve all diameters and all different long pipes.

In ansys workbench platform you can easily do that.

I just want to name the inlet and outlet sections. Forget the point.
For example, the inlet section of all pipe geometries is placed on the origin. That means if I can write the script for the inlet surface which is located on the origin, it can be named as "inlet". And also, if I can write the inlet sections, there will only one face and it is the outlet. It can be written as "outlet" also. This is not a hard issue. Maybe a lack of information.
This is just an automation process. There is no meaning of the parametric dimension. But, thanks.

This is what I only need.
