kfill

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.

Parameters
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).

nfill

Fill NFILL keypoints between NP1 and NP2 (defaults to |NP2-NP1|-1). NFILL must be positive.

nstrt

Keypoint number assigned to first filled-in keypoint (defaults to NP1 + NINC).

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.

space

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).
