aovlap

Mapdl.aovlap(na1='', na2='', na3='', na4='', na5='', na6='', na7='', na8='', na9='', **kwargs)

Overlaps areas.

APDL Command: AOVLAP

Parameters
na1, na2, na3, … , na9

Numbers of areas to be operated on. If NA1 = ALL, use all selected areas and ignore NA2 to NA9. If NA1 = P, graphical picking is enabled and all remaining arguments are ignored (valid only in the GUI). A component name may also be substituted for NA1.

Notes

Generates new areas which encompass the geometry of all the input areas. The new areas are defined by the regions of intersection of the input areas, and by the complementary (non-intersecting) regions. See Solid Modeling in the Modeling and Meshing Guide for an illustration. This operation is only valid when the region of intersection is an area. See the BOPTN command for an explanation of the options available to Boolean operations. Element attributes and solid model boundary conditions assigned to the original entities will not be transferred to the new entities generated.
