Hi, everybody!
I am a Yade newbie and now I  want to export the data from each step of the deviatoric loading phase. Here is my code. What should I do? Thank you for your help.

from yade import pack,plot,qt

num_spheres=1000,# number of spheres
compFricDegree = 30, # contact friction during the confining phase
key='_triax_base_', # put you simulation's name here

)
from yade.params import table

num_spheres=table.num_spheres# number of spheres
key=table.key
targetPorosity = 0.43 #the porosity we want for the packing

stabilityThreshold=0.01 # we test unbalancedForce against this value in different loops (see below)
young=5e6 # contact stiffness
mn,mx=Vector3(0,0,0),Vector3(1,1,1) # corners of the initial packing
## create materials for spheres and plates
O.materials.append(FrictMat(young=young,poisson=0.5,frictionAngle=radians(compFricDegree),density=2600,label='spheres'))

## TriaxialStressController will be used to control stress and strain. It controls particles size and plates positions.
## this control of boundary conditions was used for instance in http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.ijengsci.2008.07.002

## switch stress/strain control using a bitmask. What is a bitmask, huh?!
## Say x=1 if stess is controlled on x, else x=0. Same for for y and z, which are 1 or 0.
## Then an integer uniquely defining the combination of all these tests is: mask = x*1 + y*2 + z*4
## to put it differently, the mask is the integer whose binary representation is xyz, i.e.
## "100" (1) means "x", "110" (3) means "x and y", "111" (7) means "x and y and z", etc.
