How to view mgib files?

Hi

This might seem like a very basic question, but how do I get gibi to display *.mgib mesh files? When I run /opt/aster/outils/gibi.x, I just get a $ cursor. What's next?

I'm weary of converting the test case studies into gmesh format.

Todd.

Re: How to view mgib files?

Hi,

Be advised that ASTK has a handy feature that allow you to right-click on a mesh when in the "study" tab and call a mesh converter which handles the job for you (see attached picture).

To view a mgib file one must first load the file in memory with something like :

OPTI REST FORMAT 'my_mesh.mgib' ;

then use the following instruction to display any groups in the mesh :

TRAC

This is not very user-friendly that's why converting the mesh to MED format and viewing it with Salomé or Gmsh is recommended.

Thanks Thomas. The mesh converter works great.

I couldn't get gibi to work with the commands you supplied though.
A blank window opened, but that was all.

Also. How do you quit GIBI?
