POLYFLOW - How to write out output result files for last time step only ?

For evolution and time-dependent simulations, POLYFLOW usually writes all requested output files at each step, unless otherwise specified. For large 3D cases, especially, this can require a significant amount of disk space. How to save disk space?

The easiest would be to unselect all output files in the Outputs menu of POLYDATA. Upon completion of the calculation with POLYFLOW, only the standard output file (res) will be created. Subsequently, it can be easily converted onto appropriate file formats for graphical purposes. This is done in a POLYDATA session, after reading the mesh and by entering the option "convert old result files".
