linp

Mapdl.linp(nl1='', nl2='', nl3='', nl4='', nl5='', nl6='', nl7='', nl8='', nl9='', **kwargs)

Finds the pairwise intersection of lines.

APDL Command: LINP

Parameters
nl1, nl2, nl3, … , nl9

Numbers of lines to be intersected pairwise. If NL1 = ALL, find the pairwise intersection of all selected lines and NL2 to NL9 are ignored. If NL1 = P, graphical picking is enabled and all remaining command fields are ignored (valid only in the GUI). A component name may be substituted for NL1.

Notes

Finds the pairwise intersection of lines. The pairwise intersection is defined as any and all regions shared by at least two lines listed on this command. New lines will be generated where the original lines intersect pairwise. If the regions of pairwise intersection are only points, new keypoints will be generated. See the Modeling and Meshing Guide for an illustration. See the BOPTN command for the options available to Boolean operations. Element attributes and solid model boundary conditions assigned to the original entities will not be transferred to the new entities generated.
