APDL Command: ANCUT

Parameters
nfram

Number of frames captures (defaults to 5).

delay

Time delay during animation (defaults to 0.1 seconds).

ncycl

Number of animation cycles (defaults to 5). Available in non-UI mode only.

ktop

Topological effect on or off (YES or NO; default is NO).

topoff

Topological offset (default is .1 half screens).

Notes

ANCUT involves an ANSYS macro which produces an animation of Q-slices of the last plot action command. This command operates only on graphic display platforms supporting the /SEG command. After executing ANCUT, you can replay the animated sequence by issuing the ANIM command.

The command functions only in the postprocessor.
