finish

Mapdl.finish(**kwargs)

Exits normally from a processor.

APDL Command: FINISH

Notes

Exits any of the ANSYS processors or the DISPLAY program. For the ANSYS processors, data will remain intact in the database but the database is not automatically written to a file (use the SAVE command to write the database to a file). See also the /QUIT command for an alternate processor exit command. If exiting POST1, POST26, or OPT, see additional notes below.

POST1: Data in the database will remain intact, including the POST1 element table data, the path table data, the fatigue table data, and the load case pointers.

POST26: Data in the database will remain intact, except that POST26 variables are erased and specification commands (such as FILE, PRTIME, NPRINT, etc.) are reset. Use the /QUIT command to exit the processor and bypass these exceptions.

This command is valid in any processor. This command is not valid at the Begin level.
