I would like to create a input file from ABAQUS using Python. Scripting Language

I am right now learning and have some little experiance in ABAQUS and PYTHON.

if anybody has some experiance please support me.

1.)
I would like to ask for a Input from the user.
i could easily do this by

Name = input("Please input Model Name")
if Name =="":
    Name =" Model"
else:
    Name = Name

is the Syntax correct

2.)

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.

http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Programming:Python_Input_and_output

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?
