The PLAXIS Output program is the main application to review and extract results from a PLAXIS analysis. Typically, you can find all data regarding soil and structures in various plots and detailed tables as well as project-related items in the available menus.

It is also possible to use the PLAXIS command line in order to retrieve information directly, which can be useful to any automation process.

In this article, we will focus on the InputSettings object that contains all the information regarding the settings defined in the Input program stored per phase.
