- Mapdl.mgen(itime='', inc='', node1='', node2='', ninc='', **kwargs)¶
Generates additional MDOF from a previously defined set.
APDL Command: MGEN
- itime, inc
Do this generation operation a total of ITIMEs, incrementing all nodes in the set by INC each time after the first. ITIME must be > 1 for generation to occur. All previously defined master degree of freedom directions are included in the set. A component name may also be substituted for ITIME.
- node1, node2, ninc
Generate master degrees of freedom from set beginning with NODE1 to NODE2 (defaults to NODE1) in steps of NINC (defaults to 1). If NODE1 = ALL, NODE2 and NINC are ignored and set is all selected nodes [NSEL]. If NODE1 = P, graphical picking is enabled and all remaining command fields are ignored (valid only in the GUI).
Generates additional master degrees of freedom from a previously defined set. If used in SOLUTION, this command is valid only within the first load step.
This command is also valid in PREP7.
