Hello. I have a MATLAB script to run my Abaqus models through MATLAB and it works fine when I'm using Linux on my University cluster. I'm trying to make it run on my own machine which runs Windows, but I can't get it done. My function basically writes a .py file that contains all information I need to my FEM model and I MATLAB to run all values I need on my model and, at the end, outputs me the results. What I've been using on my Linux is
try
unix('~/abaqus/Commands/abaqus cae noGUI=model.py && echo ENDED!');
%
load('results.txt')
%
final_results(end+1,:) = results;
catch me
disp('======= Error ========');
final_results(end+1,:) = [0 0];
end
I've tried to use dos() with the file location of my Abaqus cmd but it didn't work out.
Can anyone help me?
Thanks

Lucas - what is the code that you are using for the Windows machine? What is the error message when you do run it?

You can execute the following Matlab code in Windows:
try
system(['abaqus cae noGUI=model.py interactive'])
%
load('results.txt')
%
final_results(end+1,:) = results;
catch me
disp('======= Error ========');
final_results(end+1,:) = [0 0];
end
