kplot

Mapdl.kplot(np1='', np2='', ninc='', lab='', vtk=None, show_keypoint_numbering=True, **kwargs)

Display the selected keypoints.

APDL Command: KPLOT

Note

PyMAPDL plotting commands with vtk=True ignore any values set with the PNUM command.

Parameters
  • np1 – Display keypoints from NP1 to NP2 (defaults to NP1) in steps of NINC (defaults to 1). If NP1 = ALL (default), NP2 and NINC are ignored and all selected keypoints [KSEL] are displayed.

  • np2 – Display keypoints from NP1 to NP2 (defaults to NP1) in steps of NINC (defaults to 1). If NP1 = ALL (default), NP2 and NINC are ignored and all selected keypoints [KSEL] are displayed.

  • ninc – Display keypoints from NP1 to NP2 (defaults to NP1) in steps of NINC (defaults to 1). If NP1 = ALL (default), NP2 and NINC are ignored and all selected keypoints [KSEL] are displayed.

  • lab

    Determines what keypoints are plotted (one of the following):

    (blank) - Plots all keypoints.

    HPT - Plots only those keypoints that are hard points.

  • vtk (bool, optional) – Plot the currently selected lines using pyvista.

  • show_keypoint_numbering (bool, optional) – Display keypoint numbers when vtk=True.

Notes

This command is valid in any processor.
