shrink

Mapdl.shrink(ratio='', **kwargs)

Shrinks elements, lines, areas, and volumes for display clarity.

APDL Command: /SHRINK

Parameters
ratio

Shrinkage ratio (input as a decimal (0.0 to 0.5)). Defaults to 0.0 (no shrinkage). Values greater than 0.5 default to 0.1 (10% shrinkage).

Notes

Shrinks the elements, lines, areas, and volumes so that adjacent entities are separated for clarity. Portions of this command are not supported by PowerGraphics [/GRAPHICS,POWER].

If only the common lines of non-coplanar faces are drawn (as per the /EDGE command), then this command is ignored.

This command is valid in any processor.
