I had a quick look, as i could not run the script, maybe attach teh txt files if you can.
I think the problem is that cload is defined at a step level, but you dont define any step to pass to AbqData to be written.
so the cload is ignored. so create the step with a tag of the same tag of cload and add
setps= [mycloadtep] in AbqData

I would appreciate your help if you could explain how to create a .inp file such that the desired information would appear in the file. I was trying to follow the examples in and similar ones, however only managed to achieve partial results.

I am specifically interested in assigning loading to nodes: I try to implement the code, but I cannot see any evidence in the .inp file. I have a Formex F (it has around 20 nodes, and consists of triangular elements) and run the script attached. Majority of the script is irrelevant. At the line 159, I have that Formex F ready. Then im preparing everyting such that I can write a .inp file. When I look at the .inp file in the text editor, I can find all the information I need, but there is no information about the cload. How to make it show up? What is wrong with the script?
