nodal deformation

i am trying to find the equations for the buckling mode shapes, i know that buckling analysis in ansys doesn't account for that. so i am trying to take a line of nodes along the length, output their deformation and use a curve fitting program to obtain the best fit to a number of different equations. but i cannot find out how to output the deformation of a line of nodes along the length to create an equation for the different buckling mode shapes, can anyone help ?

thanks !

Isn't this the same question you are asking here?
