smbc

Mapdl.smbc(mode='', **kwargs)

Controls the display of solid model boundary condition symbols and

APDL Command: /SMBC labels.

Parameters
mode

CENT

CENT - Solid model boundary condition symbols and labels appear at the centroid of the

solid model entity (default).

TESS - Solid model boundary condition symbols and labels appear inside each

constituent element of the tessellation.

Notes

Mode = CENT is designed to reduce the clutter of boundary condition symbols in solid model plots. For example, if you have assigned normal pressure loads to an area, you may choose to display the pressures as arrows with the /PSF command using /PSF,PRES,NORM,2. When Mode = CENT, the pressure arrow is displayed at the centroid of the area. When Mode = TESS, a pressure arrow is displayed at the centroid of each polygon of the area’s tessellation.

This command is valid in any processor.
