lsel

Mapdl.lsel(type_='', item='', comp='', vmin='', vmax='', vinc='', kswp='', **kwargs)

Selects a subset of lines.

APDL Command: LSEL

Parameters

type_

Label identifying the type of select:

S - Select a new set (default).

R - Reselect a set from the current set.

A - Additionally select a set and extend the current set.

U - Unselect a set from the current set.

ALL - Restore the full set.

NONE - Unselect the full set.

INVE - Invert the current set (selected becomes unselected and vice versa).

STAT - Display the current select status.

Notes

Selects lines based on values of a labeled item and component. For example, to select a new set of lines based on line numbers 1 through 7, use LSEL,S,LINE,,1,7. The subset is used when the ALL label is entered (or implied) on other commands, such as LLIST,ALL. Only data identified by line number are selected. Data are flagged as selected and unselected; no data are actually deleted from the database.

If Item = LCCA, the command selects only those lines that were created by concatenation. The KSWP field is processed, but the Comp, VMIN, VMAX, and VINC fields are ignored.

If Item = HPT, the command selects only those lines that contain hard points.

Item = RADIUS is only valid for lines that are circular arcs.

LSEL is valid in any processor.

For selections based on non-integer numbers (coordinates, results, etc.), items that are within the range VMIN -Toler and VMAX +Toler are selected. The default tolerance Toler is based on the relative values of VMIN and VMAX as follows:

If VMIN = VMAX, Toler = 0.005 x VMIN.

If VMIN = VMAX = 0.0, Toler = 1.0E-6.

If VMAX ≠ VMIN, Toler = 1.0E-8 x (VMAX - VMIN).

Use the SELTOL command to override this default and specify Toler explicitly.
