Right now I´m creating a nodout file via DATABASE_HISTORY_NODE.

I really only need the x/y/z-coordinates of every node, not the displ, vel and acc, nor the rot-values.

So to reduce the output file size, is there a way to only print the coordinates?


Thanks in advance!

Hi @stefception

I tried searching for this but could not find a solution. There may be a way to do this that I don't know of or a way to do it post-hoc. My main things to check for customizing outputs was *Control_output and *Database_extent_binary. 

I did find that you can do this within *Sensor_define_node_set, but I have never used this. It may be worth a try?
