- Mapdl.numoff(label='', value='', **kwargs)¶
Adds a number offset to defined items.
APDL Command: NUMOFF
Apply offset number to one of the following sets of items:
NODE - Nodes
ELEM - Elements
KP - Keypoints
LINE - Lines
AREA - Areas
VOLU - Volumes
MAT - Materials
TYPE - Element types
REAL - Real constants
CP - Coupled sets
SECN - Section numbers
CE - Constraint equations
CSYS - Coordinate systems
Offset number value (cannot be negative).
Useful for offsetting current model data to prevent overlap if another model is read in. CDWRITE automatically writes the appropriate NUMOFF commands followed by the model data to File.CDB. Therefore, when the file is read, any model already existing in the database is offset before the model data on the file is read.
Offsetting material numbers with this command [NUMOFF,MAT] does not update the material number referenced by either of the following:
A temperature-dependent convection or surface-to-surface radiation load [SF, SFE, SFL, SFA]
Real constants for multi-material elements (such as SOLID65).
Therefore, a mismatch may exist between the material definitions and the material numbers referenced.
