- Mapdl.kfill(np1='', np2='', nfill='', nstrt='', ninc='', space='', **kwargs)¶
Generates keypoints between two keypoints.
APDL Command: KFILL
Generates keypoints (in the active coordinate system) between two existing keypoints. The two keypoints may have been defined in any coordinate system. However, solid modeling in a toroidal coordinate system is not recommended. Any number of keypoints may be filled in and any keypoint numbering sequence may be assigned.
- np1, np2
Beginning and ending keypoints for fill-in. NP1 defaults to next to last keypoint specified, NP2 defaults to last keypoint specified. If NP1 = P, graphical picking is enabled and all remaining command fields are ignored (valid only in the GUI).
Fill NFILL keypoints between NP1 and NP2 (defaults to
|NP2-NP1|-1). NFILL must be positive.
Keypoint number assigned to first filled-in keypoint (defaults to NP1 + NINC).
Add this increment to each of the remaining filled-in keypoint numbers (may be positive or negative). Defaults to
(NP2-NP1)/(NFILL + 1), i.e., linear interpolation.
Spacing ratio. Ratio of last division size to first division size. If > 1.0, divisions increase. If < 1.0, divisions decrease. Ratio defaults to 1.0 (uniform spacing).
