- Mapdl.edele(iel1='', iel2='', inc='', **kwargs)¶
Deletes selected elements from the model.
APDL Command: EDELE
Deleted elements are replaced by null or “blank” elements. Null elements are used only for retaining the element numbers so that the element numbering sequence for the rest of the model is not changed by deleting elements. Null elements may be removed (although this is not necessary) with the NUMCMP command. If related element data (pressures, etc.) are also to be deleted, delete that data before deleting the elements. EDELE is for unattached elements only. You can use the xCLEAR family of commands to remove any attached elements from the database.
