I would like to perform several FEM simulations on a given mesh with ABAQUS, where only the orientation of an element set would change in between.
Currently, I'm just generating several inp files (see an example below) and I run them one after the other. But this has the inconvenience to reload every time the mesh, which takes time due to its large size.
Would there be a way to load the mesh only once, perform the simulations, save the results in a file, modify the orientation (orientation label going from ORI_1 to ORI_X), reperform the simulation, save in another file and so on?
I thank you in advance, Regards, R.B.
