Exporting plots from parametric sweep with variable filenames

Please login with a confirmed email address before reporting spam

Hi,

I'm running a large parametric sweep over a variable - let's call it 'a.' There's a 1D plot that I've defined in "Results," and for each of the runs in the parametric sweep, I'd like to automatically export the plot in a file named something like "plot'a'.txt." Since there are a lot of different plots for the different values of 'a', this would be difficult to do manually. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to do this?

Right click on Results->Export and select "plot". Then set up the new node to point to the image you want to export. To export it automatically then right click on Your_study->Job_Configuration->Sequence and select Results->Export_to_file. In the settings for this under File->Add_parameters_to_filename select "Parameter name and value." It will now export each image with the parameter value appended to the filename. This can generate very long filenames though, so in some cases you might want to use the "Index" value instead.
