`L10`

List of lines defining area. The minimum number of lines is 3. The positive normal of the area is controlled by the direction of

using the right-hand rule. A negative value of`L1`

reverses the normal direction. If`L1`

= ALL, use all selected lines with`L1`

defining the normal (`L2`

to`L3`

are ignored and`L10`

defaults to the lowest numbered selected line). If`L2`

= P, graphical picking is enabled and all remaining arguments are ignored (valid only in the GUI). A component name may also be substituted for`L1`

.`L1`

Lines may be input (once each) in any order and must form a simply connected closed curve. If the area is defined with more than four lines, the lines must also lie in the same plane or on a constant coordinate value in the active coordinate system (such as a plane or a cylinder).

**Note:** Solid modeling
in a toroidal coordinate system is not recommended. Areas may be redefined
only if not yet attached to a volume.

This command is valid in any processor.
