Unused fields.


Load step number of data to be exported. Defaults to the last load step.


Substep number of data to be exported. Defaults to the last substep.


File name and directory path (248 characters maximum, including the characters needed for the directory path). An unspecified directory path defaults to the working directory; in this case, you can use all 248 characters for the file name.

The file name does not have a default; you must specify a name. It CANNOT be the current Jobname.


Filename extension (eight-character maximum).

The extension must be an RST extension (default). Currently, only structural results are allowed.


Unused field.


This command exports the displacements, rotations, and temperatures calculated in an ANSYS implicit analysis into the `drelax' file, which is subsequently read in by ANSYS LS-DYNA when a dynamic relaxation or stress initialization is conducted [EDDRELAX].

This command is not written to the Jobname.CDB file when the CDWRITE command is issued.
