The VdmTools library from Visual Kinematics, Inc. provides a comprehensive mechanism for accessing data from Abaqus input files and .fil and .odb post data files and writing input files. A uniform data model is mapped onto the data structure of all input and results data files (called libraries in VdmTools). The net result being that VdmTools allows a single, consistent interface to finite element data from many sources. VdmTools also provides a "native" library format.
