Moves the working plane origin to the average of specified points.

APDL Command: WPAVE

Parameters
x1, y1, z1

Coordinates (in the active coordinate system) of the first point. If X1 = P, graphical picking is enabled and all remaining command fields are ignored (valid only in the GUI).

x2, y2, z2

Coordinates (in the active coordinate system) of the second point.

x3, y3, z3

Notes

Moves the origin of the working plane to the average of the specified points. A point is considered specified only if at least one of its coordinates is non-blank, and at least one point (1, 2, or 3) must be specified. Blank coordinates of a specified point are assumed to be zero. Averaging is based on the active coordinate system.

This command is valid in any processor.
