# zone export command

Syntax

zone export s keyword <range>

Primary keywords:

binary

Exports a grid to a file. A path can be part of the supplied file name s. The grid file is an ASCII-format file (or binary-format file if binary is assigned) description of the FLAC3D geometry (zones, gridpoints, zone groups, and face groups). The binary-format file size will be smaller than the ASCII-format file size, and it takes less loading time if being imported by FLAC3D later. The ASCII-format grid file specification can be found with the zone import command description. If no file extension is given, an extension of “f3grid” is used. The zone and face group information can be exported.

binary

exported grid file will be in binary-format instead of ASCII-format.
