lmesh

Mapdl.lmesh(nl1='', nl2='', ninc='', **kwargs)

Generates nodes and line elements along lines.

APDL Command: LMESH

Parameters
nl1, nl2, ninc

Mesh lines from NL1 to NL2 (defaults to NL1) in steps of NINC (defaults to 1). If NL1 = ALL, NL2 and NINC are ignored and all selected lines [LSEL] are meshed. If NL1 = P, graphical picking is enabled and all remaining command fields are ignored (valid only in the GUI). A component name may also be substituted for NL1 (NL2 and NINC are ignored).

Notes

Generates nodes and line elements along lines. Missing nodes required for the generated elements are created and assigned the lowest available numbers.
