Using FEMAP API to automate generation of uniquely named surfaces from excel data

Experimenter
Experimenter

Hello All,

 

I am very new to FEMAP and would appreciate some direction/advice. 

 

I am developing a detailed CCA model for analysis in thermal deskop and I have an excel spreadsheet contaning component reference IDs (like U1, R1 C1...etc) and their associated XYZ centroid location and foot print dimesions. 

 

What I wish to accomplish using the API is: 

 

Automate generation of surfaces representing the components, mesh the surfaces as 2D shell type elements, assign them properties and a shell thickness, and assign each surface (and associated mesh) a unique title correspond to the component Ref ID it represents.

 

Any advice on tackling this is greatly appreciated!
