- Mapdl.pri2(p51x='', z1='', z2='', **kwargs)¶
Creates a polygonal area or a prism volume by vertices (GUI).
APDL Command: PRI2
Creates a polygonal area or a prism volume using the vertices as input. This is a command generated by the Graphical User Interface (GUI) and will appear in the log file (Jobname.LOG) if graphical picking is used. This command is not intended to be typed in directly in an ANSYS session (although it can be included in an input file for batch input or for use with the /INPUT command).
For polygons, the PRI2 command will appear in the log file as PRI2,P51X,0.0,0.0 preceded by FITEM commands that define the vertices (in global Cartesian coordinates). For prisms, the PRI2 command will appear in the log file as PRI2,P51X preceded by FITEM commands that define the vertices and the Z-end of the prism.
See the RPOLY, POLY, RPRISM, PRISM, and RPR4 commands for other ways to create polygons and prisms.
