rezone

Mapdl.rezone(option='', ldstep='', sbstep='', **kwargs)

Initiates the rezoning process, sets rezoning options, and rebuilds the

APDL Command: REZONE database.

Parameters
option

The rezoning method to employ:

MANUAL - Manual rezoning. You decide when to use rezoning, what region(s) to rezone, and

what remeshing method to use on the selected region(s). This method is currently the default and only option.

ldstep

The load step number at which rezoning should occur. The default value is the highest load step number found in the Jobname.Rnnn files (for the current jobname and in the current directory).

sbstep

The substep number of the specified load step (LDSTEP) at which rezoning should occur. The default value is the highest substep number found in the specified load step in the Jobname.Rnnn files (for the current jobname and in the current directory).

Notes

The REZONE command rebuilds the database (.db file) based on the specified load step and substep information, and updates nodes to their deformed position for remeshing.

Before issuing this command, clear the database via the /CLEAR command.

For more information, see Rezoning in the Advanced Analysis Guide.
