vscale

Mapdl.vscale(wn='', vratio='', key='', **kwargs)

Scales the length of displayed vectors.

APDL Command: /VSCALE

Parameters
wn

Window number (or ALL) to which command applies (defaults to 1).

vratio

Ratio value applied to the automatically calculated scale factor (defaults to 1.0, i.e., use scale factor as automatically calculated).

key

Relative scaling key:

0 - Use relative length scaling among vectors based on magnitudes.

1 - Use uniform length scaling for all vector lengths.

Notes

Allows scaling of the vector length displayed with the PLVECT command of POST1 and the /PBC and /PSF commands. Also allows the scaling of the element (i.e., /PSYMB,ESYS) and the nodal (i.e., /PSYMB,NDIR) coordinate system symbols.

This command is valid in any processor.
