How can I interpolate the last snapshot of data in thermal simulation

I run the thermal simulation and want to interpolate only the last snapshot of data in python, how can I do that?
Thank you

Note: the following is in Sim4Life 3.4, I am not sure to what extent it works with older versions.

There is an "Extract Snapshot" algorithm, which you can use to extract only the latest snapshot of your data. You can then use its output as an input for the "Interpolator" algorithm:

You can do the same thing from Python (I used the "To-Python" tool)

Thanks, I will try it.

field_snapshot_filter.Outputs["T(x,y,z,t)"
Dear Sylvain,
I tried "extract snapsho", it worked in the workbench, but in the script it doesn't work.
Here is the error:

"
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Users\yao\Documents\Sim4Life\Python Script\Myscript\extraction_sar2T_all.py", line 185, in <module>
field_snapshot_filter.Snapshot = u"1200 s"
File "C:\Program Files\Sim4Life_v3.4.1.2244\s4l_v1_api\propbinders.py", line 101, in fsetter
api_prop.set(value)
File "C:\Program Files\Sim4Life_v3.4.1.2244\s4l_v1_api\propwrappers.py", line 306, in set
raise ValueError("Invalid value, '{0}' not in {1}".format(inputvalue, self.enum))
ValueError: Invalid value, '1200 s' not in None
"

can you please help to have a look why is that?

Thank you very much.

Hi,
Maybe try to add

field_snapshot_filter.UpdateAttributes()

before selecting the snapshot.

@sylvain
Never mind, I figured it out why.

Thanks anyway
