How to Run a Lumerical Script

How to Run a Script in Ansys Lumerical

Lumerical – Run – Script Command

Prior to toggling the run script in Ansys Lumerical, first, launch/run the simulation.

All simulation data will be stored to the active simulation file once the experiment is complete.

From here, the GUI will then reload the modified simulation file.

For Run Command Scripts in Lumerical FDTD,

Remember, before hitting the run script in Ansys Lumerical, first, start the simulation.

Syntax Description

run;

Launch the simulation using the resource manager’s parallel mode settings. There is no data returned by this function.

run(option1);

Option1 (default: 3) can be:

  • 1: run FDTD in single processor mode (legacy) circumventing any use of MPI.
  • 2: run FDTD in single processor mode (legacy). Notice, pop-up dialogs are no longer in the foreground.
  • 3: run FDTD in parallel mode as described in the resource manager.

For Run Command Scripts in Lumerical MODE, CHARGE, HEAT, FEEM, DGTD, INTERCONNECT,

Syntax Description

run;

Start the simulation. The settings from the first active resource in the resource manager will be used to execute the simulation. Note, there is no data returned by this function.

Practical run Lumerical Command Script Example

Create and run a new simulation in FDTD.

newproject;  # create a new simulation file
addfdtd;    # add the FDTD simulation region
adddipole;   # add a diopole source
run;      # run the simulation in parallel mode
