Mapdl.edbx(option='', boxid='', xmin='', xmax='', ymin='', ymax='', zmin='', zmax='', **kwargs)

Creates a box shaped volume to be used in a contact definition for

APDL Command: EDBX explicit dynamics.

Parameters
option

Label identifying the contact box definition option to be performed.

ADD - Adds a contact box definition (default).

DELETE - Deletes a contact box definition.

LIST - Lists each box ID number, and the coordinates that make up each box shaped

volume.

boxid

User defined list ID number.

xmin

Minimum x-coordinate.

xmax

Maximum x-coordinate.

ymin

Minimum y-coordinate.

ymax

Maximum y-coordinate.

zmin

Minimum z-coordinate.

zmax

Maximum z-coordinate.

Notes

The ANSYS LS-DYNA command EDCGEN allows you to define contact and target volumes using box ID numbers BOXID1 and BOXID2, respectively. If you use these arguments to define contact volumes, you must first define their coordinates using the EDBX command.
