Creating .bid file

Recommended Posts

How can I create a file containing the node number of my boundary nodestring? I've read to go to mesh module, File, save as and save as .bid file, but that extension is not an option, maybe because I only have Mesh and Map modules.

Can anyone help?

TIA

Fernando,

To save a Boundary ID Files (*.bid), the current model should be set to ADCIRC - use the menu command "Data | Switch Current Model...".

What model are you using? I ask because if it is needed for other models, we could make it available.

I'm using an external model very similar to ADCIRC and I really need a .bid file. I don't have ADCIRC in SMS (only have Mesh and Map modules) so when I go to File, save as I don't have the option to save as .bid.

Can you tell me who could it be available?

Fernando,

We haven't had requests in the past to make it available except for ADCIRC, but it could be done. What is your current model set to? Is it "Generic"?

What external model are you using?

Thanks,

John

My current model is set to "Generic" and my external model is ELCIRC. It is very similar to ADCIRC so I really need to create a file with boundary node number. It would be a great deal for me if you could make it available for "Generic" model.

I know that it can be done if I select Info Options and mark echo to file but the information I get needs an edition to match the .bid file format and, on the other hand, I have some boundaries with hundreds of nodes so, as you can imagine, it's not practical to use this method.

Thanks

John,

I've received an email from David Isleman with a solution and I've forwarded it to my boss. I think he has already contacted him.

I want to thank you for your support and interest in solving my problem.

Best regards,

Fernando
