If we have a lammpstrj file with 50 frames. We are going to plot the shockley dislocation lengths as a function of the time.  It is very  burdensome job if we input each values into a txt file.  Can we export these values calculated by DXA  from Ovito to a txt file?
Thanks.

Hi Mike,

Yes, Ovito allows you to do this. You simply have to use the File/Export File function. Pick "Calculation Results Text File" as output format. The Dislocation Analysis modifier outputs an attribute with the name "DislocationAnalysis.length.1/6<112>", which you can export to a text file as a function of simulation time.
