EDRMedeso CSV Plot for Ansys Mechanical : Post processing tool to create custom nodal or element contour plot from csv file including unit conversion and mid node interpolation


  • Many times inputs and outputs are created outside of Ansys in the form of text files, e.g. surface convection coefficient data from a CFD analysis or post processing of stress data creating nodal safety factor list.

  • It is impossible to import this kind of results into Mechanical for post processing.


  • The CSV Plot adds the possibility to create a contour plot of any nodal, element or grid data in Mechanical including all valid Workbench unit strings for automatic unit conversion. This can be used to read in an external model and plot e.g. convection data or adding a custom result to the current model based on external post processing.
