vplot#

Mapdl.vplot(nv1='', nv2='', ninc='', degen='', scale='', vtk=None, quality=4, show_area_numbering=False, show_line_numbering=False, color_areas=False, show_lines=True, **kwargs)#

Plot the selected volumes.

APDL Command: VPLOT

Note

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

Parameters
nv1, nv2, ninc

Display volumes from NV1 to NV2 (defaults to NV1) in steps of NINC (defaults to 1). If NV1 = ALL (default), NV2 and NINC are ignored and all selected volumes [VSEL] are displayed. Ignored when vtk=True.

degen

Degeneracy marker. "blank" No degeneracy marker is used (default), or "DEGE". A red star is placed on keypoints at degeneracies (see the Modeling and Meshing Guide). Not available if /FACET,WIRE is set. Ignored when vtk=True.

scale

Scale factor for the size of the degeneracy-marker star. The scale is the size in window space (-1 to 1 in both directions) (defaults to .075). Ignored when vtk=True.

vtkbool, optional

Plot the currently selected volumes using pyvista. As this creates a temporary surface mesh, this may have a long execution time for large meshes.

qualityint, optional

quality of the mesh to display. Varies between 1 (worst) to 10 (best). Applicable when vtk=True.

show_numberingbool, optional

Display line and keypoint numbers when vtk=True.

Examples

Plot while displaying area numbers.
