here’s how to select parts based on element type

Here is a link to a python file

from ensight.objs import *

# # # def echo_part_elem_type(p): if p.HAS1DELEMENTS: print p.DESCRIPTION, " has 1D line elements" if p.HAS2DELEMENTS: print p.DESCRIPTION, " has 2D surface elements" if p.HAS3DELEMENTS: print p.DESCRIPTION, " has 3D volume elements" # Ensight 10 only #if p.HAS0DELEMENTS: # print p.DESCRIPTION, " has 0D point elements" # # STRUCTURED MODEL PART # if p.PARTTYPE == ensight.PART_MODEL: if p.NODERANGESTEPI[0] > 0 and p.NODERANGESTEPI[1] > 0 and p.NODERANGESTEPI[2] > 0: print "Structured I from ", p.NODERANGESTEPI[0] , " to ", p.NODERANGESTEPI[1], " by step " , p.NODERANGESTEPI[2] if p.NODERANGESTEPJ[0] > 0 and p.NODERANGESTEPJ[1] > 0 and p.NODERANGESTEPJ[2] > 0: print "Structured J from ", p.NODERANGESTEPJ[0] , " to ", p.NODERANGESTEPJ[1], " by step " , p.NODERANGESTEPJ[2] if p.NODERANGESTEPK[0] > 0 and p.NODERANGESTEPK[1] > 0 and p.NODERANGESTEPK[2] > 0: print "Structured K from ", p.NODERANGESTEPK[0] , " to ", p.NODERANGESTEPK[1], " by step " , p.NODERANGESTEPK[2] print return # # Note this methodology will work in ES10 # for p in core.PARTS: if p.ISGROUP == True: if p.sources: for subp in p.sources: echo_part_elem_type(subp) else: echo_part_elem_type(p)
