lfillt

Mapdl.lfillt(nl1='', nl2='', rad='', pcent='', **kwargs)

Generate a fillet line between two intersecting lines.

APDL Command: LFILLT

Generates a fillet line between two intersecting lines NL1 (P1-PINT) and NL2 (P2-PINT). Three keypoints may be generated, two at the fillet tangent points (PTAN1 and PTAN2) and one (optional) at the fillet arc center (PCENT). Line P1-PINT becomes P1-PTAN1, P2-PINT becomes P2-PTAN2, and new arc line PTAN1-PTAN2 is generated. Generated keypoint and line numbers are automatically assigned (beginning with the lowest available values [NUMSTR]). Line divisions are set to zero (use LESIZE, etc. to modify).

Parameters
nl1

Number of the first intersecting line.

nl2

Number of the second intersecting line.

rad

Radius of fillet to be generated. Radius should be less than the lengths of the two lines specified with NL1 and NL2.

pcent

Number to be assigned to generated keypoint at fillet arc center. If zero (or blank), no keypoint is generated.

Returns
int

Line number of the generated line.

Examples

Create two intersecting lines at a right angle and add a fillet between them.

>>> k0 = mapdl.k("", 0, 0, 0)
>>> k1 = mapdl.k("", 0, 1, 0)
>>> k2 = mapdl.k("", 1, 0, 0)
>>> l0 = mapdl.l(k0, k1)
>>> l1 = mapdl.l(k0, k2)
>>> lnum = mapdl.lfillt(l0, l1, 0.25)
