mshmid

Mapdl.mshmid(key='', **kwargs)

Specifies placement of midside nodes.

APDL Command: MSHMID

Parameters
key

Key indicating placement of midside nodes:

0 - Midside nodes (if any) of elements on a region boundary follow the curvature of

the boundary line or area (the default).

1 - Place midside nodes of all elements so that element edges are straight. Allows

coarse mesh along curves.

2 - Do not create midside nodes (elements will have removed midside nodes).

Notes

The MSHMID, MSHAPE, and MSHKEY commands replace the functionality that was provided by the ESHAPE command in ANSYS 5.3 and earlier releases.

This command is also valid for rezoning.
