Simplifies the generation of meshes that have matching node element patterns on two different line groups (in 2-D) or area groups (3-D).
Copy line mesh (default) if LINE, 0 or 1. Copy area mesh if AREA, or 2.
Meshed line/area to be copied, or a component name containing
a list. If
LAPTRN = P, graphical picking is enabled
(valid only in the GUI).
Unmeshed line/area to get copied mesh, or a component name
containing a list. If
LACOPY = P, graphical picking
is enabled (valid only in the GUI).
In coordinate system
Node location increments in the active coordinate system (DR, Dθ, DZ for cylindrical, DR, Dθ, DΦ for spherical or toroidal).
Tolerance. Defaults to 1.e--4.
Name of low node component to be defined (optional).
Name of high node component to be defined (optional).
Matching meshes are used for rotational (cyclic) symmetry, or for contact analysis using coupling or node-to-node gap elements. See Using CPCYC and MSHCOPY Commands in the Modeling and Meshing Guide for more information.
