linv

Mapdl.linv(nl='', nv='', **kwargs)

Finds the intersection of a line with a volume.

APDL Command: LINV

Parameters
  • nl – Number of line to be intersected. If NL = P, graphical picking is enabled and all remaining command fields are ignored (valid only in the GUI).

  • nv – Number of volume to be intersected.

Notes

Finds the intersection of a line with a volume. New lines will be generated where the lines intersect the volumes. If the regions of intersection are only points, new keypoints will be generated instead. 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.
