1.)  If you run your code through a Python interpreter, it will tell you whether the syntax is correct more reliably than a human reader.

You probably want to use "raw_input" rather than "input".  "input" processes the input as if it were Python code.


The else clause is unnecessary.  There is no point in assigning Name to itself.  You could just leave that out.

Sorry, I can't help you with 2.).

0) Do you mean "create an input file FOR ABAQUS"

2) You would not. Python has no concept of points or splines. It is a general purpose programmin lanauage. Are you asking how to get ABAQUS to draw a spline?
