there is the button -data matrix- to IMPORT a data matrix.

Is there a way to EXPORT the caesar model as data matrix?

Sorry, there is no such option. However, depending on what your ultimate goal is you can either:

1) Export to the CII neutral file, or

2) Use an alternate .INP file (located in the /system directory) to alter the format of the input echo.

Maybe Vermaccio is referring to the data matrix import a piping model. Here is a similar post and a helpful excel utility.

The formatting of the input echo sections is controlled by a set of .INP files (there is one for elements, one for bends, one for restraints, etc.). If you change to a different set of .INP files, the format of the input echo changes.

There are a number of alternate .INP files for the echo of the element data: element0.inp, element1.inp, element2.inp and so forth. The software only reads (uses) element.inp - note, no number in this file name. Further, element0.inp is identical to the distributed element.inp (so you can get back to the original implementation).

Try this, from the /system directory:
- Copy element1.inp to element.inp (over-writting element.inp).
- Generate an input echo of the elements.
- If this isn't what you want, try again by copying element2.inp to element.inp, generate the input echo again.
- When you're finished, copy element0.inp to element.inp to get back to the original implementation.

I hope this helps.

The format and special codes in the .INP files are documented in the "User's Manual".

on help file:

ASCII Text File Rules:
https://hexagonppm.fluidtopics.net/r/en-US/CAESAR-II-Users-Guide/Version-12/894218

and the bottom of section it tells to look for "print" link BUT it goes to the wrong page (wrong link).
the right one is this:

PRINT:
https://hexagonppm.fluidtopics.net/r/en-US/CAESAR-II-Users-Guide/Version-12/336203

that tell to look at acsii text rules again.
the circle is closed :P


where is the manual to write/change the element.inp file, to understand file coding?
