lx

Query.lx(n, lfrac)

X-coordinate of line n at length fraction lfrac.

Fetches X-coordinate of line n at lfrac times the line length along the line. 0. <= lfrac <= 1..

Parameters
  • n (int) – The line number of the line to be considered.

  • lfrac (float) – The fraction of the length of the line along which to enquire. 0. <= lfrac <= 1.

Return type

float

Returns

float – The X-coordinate.

Examples

Here we construct a line between the coordinates (0, 0, 0) and (1, 2, 3) then find the X-coordinate halfway along the line.

>>> k0 = mapdl.k(1, 0, 0, 0)

>>> l0 = mapdl.l(k0, k1)
