How to create OUTPUT parameters in SpaceClaim?

Hi guys,

I'm facing a difficulty: in SpaceClaim, I wrote a script to represent an airfoil and to deform its leading edge (to be able to optimize it later).
I also perform two calculations in this script (the area of the modified leading edge and its curvilinear length) that I would like to use in the Workbench as output parameters.
I can't find a way to do this. Can someone help me?

Thank you in advance,

Thomas.

I am not expert in script. But n 2020R1, I found something to record area. Please see image below

Thank you for your prompt response.
Unfortunately, the 2020R1 version is apparently not yet available for students.

Or maybe is there a way to import a value (saved in a text file) in a parameter in the Workbench ? What I would like to do is shown in the following figure:

Hi guys, 

 

I asked the SpaceClaim team and they told me that it was not possible to create OUTPUT parameters. 

So what I did to overcome this problem (i.e. having the curvilinear length and the cross-sectional area of the airfoil of my 2D geometry) is to use report definitions in Fluent (area and volume). Since my domain is in 2D, the area of the airfoil gives me the curvilinear length and the volume gives me the cross-sectional area. Now I can define constraints based on these values. 

 

I hope this will help some of you,

 

Thomas.

Glad that you figured it out.
