When I type "SwiftComp micro1D.sc 3D H" in the commandline window, as stated in Readme.txt which is in the installation folder, it reports successful run and I can get the effective properties. However, when I try to homogenize manually in Abaqus using SwiftComp GUI, after clicking OK on the SwiftComp's Homogenization pop-up screen, nothing pop-ups automatically. In SwiftComp Manual, it is stated that effective properties will pop up at that moment automatically. 4 files are created. (see attachment)
Two of the created files are empty and I think the file with .sc.k extension is the one which is supposed to have the effective properties.
Does anyone know what might cause this?
Thanks in advance.

I have tested a particle reinforced 3D SG for beam properties using the Abaqus-SwiftComp GUI which works fine. I am not sure the reason for your issue without any further information. You may find some useful information if you can check the command window associated with the Abaqus-SwiftComp GUI. Or if you can share your model on this page, I can check it for you.
Please note that the current version of Abaqus-SwiftComp GUI will not generate a pop up command window to show the effective properties. In order to obtain the effective properties, please open the .K file as you mentioned.
