I was looking into this question a while ago but found no solution. So maybe someone else knows the solution. Is there a way to get the results - node or element outputs - at the time 0 of the first analysis step. The results at time 0 are usually not interesting so CalculiX does not write them out. But if you have an *Initial condition defined, it should be possible to output the results at time 0. Is it?

Looking at the heat transfer analysis where the initial temperature is important to visualise I am wondering how to do it. Is there a way to do it using CGX?

In the dynamic drop impact analysis, when the initial velocity was set in the direction of gravity with “* INITIAL CONDITIONS, TYPE = VELOCITY” (for example -8.8573811) and the analysis was performed, but the velocity was 0 at t = 0 in the result file.
I think that the velocity at t = 0 should be the set velocity (for example -8.8573811).

Yes, I agree. If you used PrePoMax you got the wrong results for Step 1, Increment 0. Now, PrePoMax returns 0 for all result fields. I am thinking of changing this behaviour since it not possible to output the results values at time 0 of the first step in the CalculiX.

I imagine that this problem with the default temperature and velocity is not a problem on the PrePoMax, but simply a problem on the CalculiX. (I just only imagine.)
