Abaqus: write surface mesh element detail

  1. Jul 26, 2012 #1

    i need some help in writing the surface mesh in abaqus. i have a wing model, meshed using hexahedral mesh. now what i want is to write the surface element detail on a file, containing the element number and its neighbouring four nodes. for example

    12, 2 3 5 6

    here 12 is the element number and 2,3,5 & 6 are the corresponding nodes.

    what i have tried uptill now is i have created the node / element set. but when i write these set on a file (.inp) i get only the node / element number not the neighbouring information.
    so what i need is surface mesh detail form a hexahedral mesh.

    ** A sample file is attached of what i have created.
