Basically, I am trying to import a model (generated by Rhino/Grasshopper) and perform FEA (ABAQUS)and optimisation (Isight, Dassault system). Importing the model into Abaqus and performing FEA was okey. But a problem is, once finished FEA, Isight software cannot detect any parameters/features of the model so it was unable to pick up input variables. Therefore, as a possible solution, what I am thinking is to build a python (or matlab) script to fill the gap between Rhino/G.H and Isight. This means that the python script can make Isight picks up parameters of the model generated from Rhino/G.H
As far as I know, exporting rhino file into .igs, .step file lost all parameters/features. Then I guess there is a possibility of using .gh file or .ghx file which it seems like it contains all parameters/features.
To summarise my question,
- Does either of .gh file or .ghx file contain all parameters/features of the model?
- Or any CAD file type (3dm, .igs, .stp, .COLLAD…) has features when they get exported?
- If so, one of two questions, is it possible to build a python script to import the model with all parameters?
