cpsgen

Mapdl.cpsgen(itime='', inc='', nset1='', nset2='', ninc='', **kwargs)

Generates sets of coupled nodes from existing sets.

APDL Command: CPSGEN

Parameters
  • itime – Do this generation operation a total of ITIMEs, incrementing all nodes in the existing sets by INC each time after the first. ITIME must be > 1 for generation to occur.

  • inc – Do this generation operation a total of ITIMEs, incrementing all nodes in the existing sets by INC each time after the first. ITIME must be > 1 for generation to occur.

  • nset1 – Generate sets from sets beginning with NSET1 to NSET2 (defaults to NSET1) in steps of NINC (defaults to 1). If NSET1 is negative, NSET2 and NINC are ignored and the last |NSET1| sets (in sequence from the maximum set number) are used as the sets to be repeated.

  • nset2 – Generate sets from sets beginning with NSET1 to NSET2 (defaults to NSET1) in steps of NINC (defaults to 1). If NSET1 is negative, NSET2 and NINC are ignored and the last |NSET1| sets (in sequence from the maximum set number) are used as the sets to be repeated.

  • ninc – Generate sets from sets beginning with NSET1 to NSET2 (defaults to NSET1) in steps of NINC (defaults to 1). If NSET1 is negative, NSET2 and NINC are ignored and the last |NSET1| sets (in sequence from the maximum set number) are used as the sets to be repeated.

Notes

Generates additional sets of coupled nodes (with the same labels) from existing sets. Node numbers between sets may be uniformly incremented.
