I’m trying to export a mesh from CUBIT into ABAQUS. In order to conveniently assign a certain set of elements a section in ABAQUS, I would like to create blocks of elements in CUBIT, and be able to select these blocks in ABAQUS.
However, I am unable to select the blocks I created in CUBIT in the ABAQUS Section Assignment menu. I believe this is because the blocks I created in CUBIT show up in the assembly => sets of ABAQUS, and ABAQUS is looking in the part => sets menu.
My question is: Is there are a command in CUBIT that allows one to export the mesh into ABAQUS and have the blocks created show up in the Parts => Sets menu?
