Hi there, I need to find a way to export .fig files to an FEA software such as ANSYS or Abaqus.
The reason for this is I am doing a project where I optimise a 2D section with a genetic algorithm with FEA done to each section on each generation.
I need to generate a population of 2D section designs with matlab which can be passed into the FE software and the results passed back to MATLAB.
Is this possible?

Yes it is very much possible.. but you need to enter the details of FEA/ FEM mesh in the format which software demands. Already ANSYS/ ABAQUS have very good at preprocessing and postprocessing, why don't you use the same? Why you want to make it complex using MATLAB?
