plgeom

Mapdl.plgeom(item='', nodekey='', **kwargs)

Plots target and source geometries.

APDL Command: PLGEOM

Parameters
item

Items to plot:

BOTH - Plot both target and source geometries (default).

TARGET - Plot only the target geometry.

SOURCE - Plot only the source geometry.

nodekey

If the source data contains faces (that is, surface elements were created upon the READ command), set NODEkey = 1 to plot only the source nodes rather than both the nodes and the elements.

Notes

Target faces are displayed in gray and source points in yellow. If the source data contains faces (that is, surface elements were created upon the READ command), the source faces are also displayed in blue (unless NODEkey = 1), and both surfaces are made translucent.
