Post-processing APDL .rst file in WB

    • Dmitry Zhuk


      I'm using the procedure from that page:
      It worked fine before but when tried to open 200 Gb .rst file it gives an error: An error occurred while copying result file to the solver files directory.
      I don't have additional 200 Gb on my hard drive to get file copied and I don't really see the point of copying. I tried to move .rst file to ..\dp0\SYS-1\MECH before opening it in WB but error presists.

      Any help is appreciated

      This error most likely is about the space while reading the rst file, you may want to open a new SR with us if possible. An alternative approach to this one would be reading rst file using opensource pyAnsys products. One example can be found here:
