dflab

Mapdl.dflab(dof='', displab='', forcelab='', **kwargs)

Changes degree-of-freedom labels for user custom elements.

APDL Command: /DFLAB

Parameters
dof

Number between 1 and 32 indicating which degree of freedom is to have its labels changed. For a list of these quantities, see the degree-of-freedom table in the echprm.inc file. The first few quantities follow:

displab

New label (four-character maximum) for the displacement label. The prior label is no longer valid.

forcelab

New label (four-character maximum) for the force label for this degree of freedom. The prior label is no longer valid.

Notes

The /DFLAB command is rarely used. Use it if you are writing a custom element and want to use degrees of freedom that are not part of the standard element set.
