op2 from MSC Marc?

pragtic's picture

Dear iMechanicians,

I wonder if anybody knows how to get an op2 file (MSC.Nastran) from MSC.Marc. Is something like that possible? Or do you know some available converter? Potentially, fil or odb file from ABAQUS or rst file from ANSYS could help as well. But I would expect there some way within the MSC product family...

Thanks a lot for any idea.

In nastran using PARAM, POST card you can control the output format of results file as XDB or OP2.

Well, technically you are right. But as I was said, since we have quite an old Marc version (I am not sure but maybe from times before the MSC acquisition of Marc), we cannot use this solution. It seems that the integration of both packages is either not perfect or it is not desired to support the old versions...

Does anybody know any other solution?

Thanks a lot anyway.
