Mapdl.taxis(parmloc='', naxis='', val1='', val2='', val3='', val4='', val5='', val6='', val7='', val8='', val9='', val10='', **kwargs)

Defines table index numbers.

APDL Command: *TAXIS

Parameters
  • parmloc – Name and starting location in the table array parameter for indexing. Indexing occurs along the axis defined with nAxis.

  • naxis

    Axis along which indexing occurs. Valid labels are:

    Corresponds to Row. Default. - Corresponds to Column.

    Corresponds to Plane. - Corresponds to Book.

    Corresponds to Shelf. - Lists all index numbers. Valid only if Val1 = LIST.

  • val1 – Values of the index numbers for the axis nAxis, starting from the table array parameter location ParmLoc. You can define up to ten values.

  • val2 – Values of the index numbers for the axis nAxis, starting from the table array parameter location ParmLoc. You can define up to ten values.

  • val3 – Values of the index numbers for the axis nAxis, starting from the table array parameter location ParmLoc. You can define up to ten values.

  • . () – Values of the index numbers for the axis nAxis, starting from the table array parameter location ParmLoc. You can define up to ten values.

  • val10 – Values of the index numbers for the axis nAxis, starting from the table array parameter location ParmLoc. You can define up to ten values.

Notes

*TAXIS is a convenient method to define table index values. These values reside in the zero column, row, etc. Instead of filling values in these zero location spots, use the *TAXIS command. For example,

would fill index values 1.0, 2.2, 3.5, 4.7, and 5.9 in nAxis 2 (column

location), starting at location 4.

To list index numbers, issue *TAXIS,ParmLoc, nAxis, LIST, where nAxis = 1 through 5 or ALL.
