slashmap

Mapdl.slashmap(**kwargs)

Enters the mapping processor.

APDL Command: /MAP

Notes

Enters the mapping processor. This processor is used to read in source data from an external file and map it to the existing geometry.

The current database is saved (to BeforeMapping.DB) upon entering the processor, and it is resumed upon exiting (FINISH command). Any nodes or elements not on the target surface are deleted for easier viewing of the mapping quantities. A database of this mapping geometry (Mapping.DB) is also saved at the FINISH command.

This command is valid only at the Begin Level.
