I am working on a parametric study using ANSYS Workbench, and so far I have been able to prepare a journal file that performs the commands native to the Workbench. However, now that I need to include the ANSYS Mechanical in this process, I find numerous difficulties to complete the required script.
I already know that I need to work with Jscript and that the functions are all stored in .XML files inside the folder 'aisol'. In fact, I have checked all the parts of a relevant application via the link: http://www.padtinc.com/blog/the-focus/ansys-mechanical-scripting-howto-part-1. However, there are still several questions that I am really not sure about their answers:
1- Is there any way to record the commands which we manually apply inside the Mechanical GUI? Given that the above mentioned article goes back to older versions of ANSYS, I wonder if there is a better solution added in a certain update.
2- Are there documentations available for scripting with the ANSYS Mechanical? I have not been able to find something like the guidelines or help documents that are vastly available for scripting with other applications (such as Spaceclaim or APDL).
I would be truly grateful if someone could give me some information in this regard.
