For examples of scripts that read and write from an output database, see Example scripts that access data from an output database.

The example scripts from this guide can be copied to the user’s working directory by using the Abaqus fetch utility:

abaqus fetch job=scriptName

where scriptName.py is the name of the script (see Fetching sample input files).
