This movie shows how to create a command file and use it to calculate multiple projects unattended with help of a batch file.
With PLAXIS 2D and PLAXIS 3D, a fully working command line with a command runner is available, giving you the flexibility to run the application in an automated way.
To run an automated file after loading a PLAXIS 2D project ( *.p2dx), the format of the command line is:
"[PLAXIS 2D installation folder]\Plaxis2DXInput.exe" "[full path to Plaxis file]" "--run=[path to command file]"
"C:\Program Files\Bentley\Geotechnical\PLAXIS 2D CONNECT Edition V20\Plaxis2DxInput.exe" "D:\Projects\Project1A.p2dx" "--run=D:\Projects\calculateprojects.log"
In order to launch a command file after loading a PLAXIS 3D project, the format of the command line is:
"[PLAXIS 3D installation folder]\Plaxis3DInput.exe" "[full path to Plaxis file]" "--run=[path to command file]"
"C:\Program Files\Bentley\Geotechnical\PLAXIS 3D CONNECT Edition V20\Plaxis3DInput.exe" "D:\Projects\Project1A.P3D" "--run=D:\Projects\calculateprojects.log"
Energy saving while running multiple calculations
