dset

Mapdl.dset(node1='', node2='', node3='', ddev='', **kwargs)

Sets the scale and drawing plane orientation for a digitizing tablet.

APDL Command: DSET

Parameters
  • node1 – Any three (noncolinear) nodes defining a plane parallel to the drawing. Nodes and actual locations (in any coordinate system) must have been previously defined.

  • node2 – Any three (noncolinear) nodes defining a plane parallel to the drawing. Nodes and actual locations (in any coordinate system) must have been previously defined.

  • node3 – Any three (noncolinear) nodes defining a plane parallel to the drawing. Nodes and actual locations (in any coordinate system) must have been previously defined.

  • ddev – Digitizing device type number (device dependent).

Notes

Sets drawing scale size and defines the drawing plane orientation for use with a digitizing tablet. Drawings must be to scale. Views must represent standard orthogonal parallel projections. The three nodes indicated must be digitized [DIG] from the tablet after this command is issued.
