- Mapdl.kdist(kp1='', kp2='', **kwargs)¶
Calculates and lists the distance between two keypoints.
APDL Command: KDIST
First keypoint in distance calculation.
Second keypoint in distance calculation.
[DIST, X, Y, Z]distance between two keypoints.
KDIST lists the distance between keypoints KP1 and KP2, as well as the current coordinate system offsets from KP1 to KP2, where the X, Y, and Z locations of KP1 are subtracted from the X, Y, and Z locations of KP2 (respectively) to determine the offsets. KDIST is valid in any coordinate system except toroidal [CSYS,3]. This command is valid in any processor.
Compute the distance between two keypoints.
>>> kp0 = (0, 10, -3) >>> kp1 = (1, 5, 10) >>> knum0 = mapdl.k("", *kp0) >>> knum1 = mapdl.k("", *kp1) >>> dist = mapdl.kdist(knum0, knum1) >>> dist [13.96424004376894, 1.0, -5.0, 13.0]
