AutomateD SwEep CAD modeller Of Extrusion-based G-coDE (DECODE) is a MATLAB subroutine to generate 3D printed parts models with Abaqus. It can model Simplify3D or Slic3r G-codes.
Steps:
1) Open the Abaqus_model path in MATLAB.
2) Save the “.gcode” file in the same search path.
3) Run the Abaqus_model.m subroutine.
4) Introduce the G-code file name (ending in “.gcode”) and the desired output file name (ending in “.py”).
5) Open Abaqus/CAE, choose “Run Script” and select the generated Python (.py) file.6) Wait for the modelling process and use the model as desired.

You can also write to the author (gisela.vega@ulpgc.es) to solve any problems or make suggestions for updates.
If you have any problems, please first make sure that you are using the versions described in the subroutine header or that it is not a problem of lack of memory on your computer. Some large parts can be quite heavy and time-consuming. Slic3r G-codes can cause problems due to the creation of end segments overlapping with the path or generation of closed segments at the beginning or end of the path.
