ndele

Mapdl.ndele(node1='', node2='', ninc='', **kwargs)

Deletes nodes.

APDL Command: NDELE

Parameters
  • node1 – Delete nodes from NODE1 to NODE2 (defaults to NODE1) in steps of NINC (defaults to 1). If NODE1 = ALL, NODE2 and NINC are ignored and all selected nodes [NSEL] are deleted. If NODE1 = 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 NODE1.

  • node2 – Delete nodes from NODE1 to NODE2 (defaults to NODE1) in steps of NINC (defaults to 1). If NODE1 = ALL, NODE2 and NINC are ignored and all selected nodes [NSEL] are deleted. If NODE1 = 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 NODE1.

  • ninc – Delete nodes from NODE1 to NODE2 (defaults to NODE1) in steps of NINC (defaults to 1). If NODE1 = ALL, NODE2 and NINC are ignored and all selected nodes [NSEL] are deleted. If NODE1 = 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 NODE1.

Notes

Deletes selected nodes that are not connected to elements. Nodes may also be redefined instead of deleted, if desired. Boundary conditions (displacements, forces, etc.) as well as any coupling or constraint equations containing the deleted nodes are also deleted.

This command is also valid in the /MAP processor.
