I was thinking if there is a way for there to be a script that lists according to the image "Figure 7.45: CHX60":
I am generating the mesh in GID to be later operated in a format that DIANA requests
How are you exporting the file for DIANA?
a) Using a template .bas?
then inside the *loop elems / *end elems
instead of print all connectivities with
that will print the list of node ids with the GiD order
you can ask each individual connectivity with and extra argument
*elemsconec(1) *elemsconec(2) ... *elemsconec(20)
and then you can reorder it as you want.
b) Using a Tcl procedure, do you have much more control,
you can ask GiD mesh information with commands like
GiD_Info mesh ...
GiD_Mesh get ...
(see GiD customization manual for the full syntax of these commands)
and print to a file what you want
