Displays the layer stacking sequence for layered elements.
Element number for the display. If blank and the current element type is a layered element type, display data from the current real constant table.
Range of layer numbers to be displayed. If
LAYR1 is greater than
LAYR2, a reversed order display is produced. Up to 20 layers may be displayed
at a time.
LAYR1 defaults to 1.
LAYR2 defaults to
LAYR1 is input or to the number of layers (or to 19+
LAYR1, if smaller) if
LAYR1 is not input.
Displays the layer-stacking sequence as defined in the real constant table for layered shell and solid elements in a form where the layers are visible (like a sheared deck of cards).
The element x-axis is shown as 0.0 degrees.
Layers are cross-hatched and color-coded for clarity. The hatch lines indicate the layer angle (real constant THETA) and the color coding is for material identification (real constant MAT).
The actual orientation of a specific layer in three-dimensional space can be seen using /PSYMB,LAYR. To use /PSYMB,LAYR with smeared reinforcing elements (REINF265), first set the vector-mode graphics option (/DEVICE,VECTOR,1).
This command is valid in any processor.
