polygon

Mapdl.polygon(nvert='', x1='', y1='', x2='', y2='', x3='', y3='', x4='', y4='', **kwargs)

Creates annotation polygons (GUI).

APDL Command: /POLYGON

Parameters
nvert

Number of vertices of polygon (3 NVERT 8). Use /PMORE for polygons with more than 4 vertices.

x1

X location for vertex 1 of polygon (-1.0 < X < 2.0).

y1

Y location for vertex 1 of polygon (-1.0 < Y < 1.0).

x2

X location for vertex 2 of polygon (-1.0 < X < 2.0).

y2

Y location for vertex 2 of polygon (-1.0 < Y < 1.0).

x3

X location for vertex 3 of polygon (-1.0 < X < 2.0).

y3

Y location for vertex 3 of polygon (-1.0 < Y < 1.0).

x4

X location for vertex 4 of polygon (-1.0 < X < 2.0).

y4

Y location for vertex 4 of polygon (-1.0 < Y < 1.0).

Notes

Creates annotation polygons to be written directly onto the display at a specified location. This is a command generated by the Graphical User Interface (GUI) and will appear in the log file (Jobname.LOG) if annotation is used. This command is not intended to be typed in directly in an ANSYS session (although it can be included in an input file for batch input or for use with the /INPUT command).

All polygons are shown on subsequent displays unless the annotation is turned off or deleted. Use the /LSPEC and the /PSPEC command to set the attributes of the polygon. Use the /PMORE command to define the 5th through 8th vertices of the polygon.

This command is valid in any processor.
