Description

File type

You can save the following file types:

  • Geometry Mode: *.pcs:

    Only geometry data is stored in a *.pcs file.

  • Materials Mode: *.mat:

    Only material data is stored in a *.mat file. The assignment of materials to the regions is not saved here!

  • Simulation Mode: *.crys or *.crys.gz:

    All data is stored in a *.crys file or a compressed *.crys.gz file, if you select this option in the File type list box. The program uses gzip format for compressed files.

    If you want to store view factors, not Gebhardt factors, you must set the appropriate option in Preferences (see Preferences ).

Note

These file types have to be saved by the user. Files automatically saved by CrysMAS, e.g. when writing polylines, have special extensions, see Log and Monitoring Files.

All

Saves all data to the *.crys file including the simulation data. If you want to store view factors, not Gebhardt factors, you must set the appropriate option in Preferences (see Preferences ).

Only geometry

Saves only the geometry data to the specified *.crys file. All other data like mesh, view factors or simulation data will not be saved to this file.

This option is only available in Simulation Mode. It is useful, if you want to use the specified furnace for another simulation.

Only geometry + mesh

Saves only geometry and mesh data to the specified *.crys file. All other data like view factors or simulation data will not be saved to this file.

This option is only available in Simulation Mode. It is useful, if you want to use the specified furnace and mesh for another simulation
