Generates a scaled set of areas from a pattern of areas.
Set of areas,
NINC, that defines the pattern to be scaled.
NA2 defaults to
to 1. If
NA1 = ALL,
ignored and the pattern is defined by all selected areas. If
P, graphical picking is enabled and all remaining arguments are ignored (valid
only in the GUI). A component name may also be substituted for
NINC are ignored).
Scale factors to be applied to the X, Y, and Z keypoint coordinates
in the active coordinate system. (RR, R θ, RZ for
cylindrical; RR, R θ, R Φ for spherical). Note that the R θ and R Φ scale
factors are interpreted as angular offsets.
For example, if CSYS = 1,
RX, RY, RZ input of
(1.5,10,3) would scale the specified keypoints 1.5 times in the radial and
3 times in the Z direction, while adding an offset of 10 degrees to the keypoints.
Zero, blank, or negative scale factor values are assumed to be 1.0. Zero
or blank angular offsets have no effect.
Increment to be applied to keypoint numbers for generated set. If zero, the lowest available keypoint numbers will be assigned [NUMSTR].
Specifies whether nodes and elements are also to be generated:
Nodes and elements associated with the original areas will be generated (scaled) if they exist.
Nodes and elements will not be generated.
Specifies whether areas will be moved or newly defined:
Additional areas will be generated.
Original areas will be moved to
new position (
Generates a scaled set of areas (and their corresponding keypoints, lines, and mesh) from a pattern of areas. The MAT, TYPE, REAL, and ESYS attributes are based on the areas in the pattern and not the current settings. Scaling is done in the active coordinate system. Areas in the pattern could have been generated in any coordinate system. However, solid modeling in a toroidal coordinate system is not recommended.
