We recibed this question some weeks ago, and we want share our answer with all Abaqus2Matlab users:
I am new to this field of Abaqus, but have been using Matlab for over 15 years ...
I am curious if there is a way to generate/pre-process Abaqus FEA mesh data with Matlab.
Some of my colleagues have recommended using python with Abaqus but after taking a week long class on Python ... I was left feeling very grateful that I have Matlab to do scientific and engineering analysis work.
