Generates nodes for general axisymmetric element sections.
Specifies one of the following command behaviors:
Generates nodes around the axis of an axisymmetric section (default).
Clears all nodes around the axis of an axisymmetric section.
Specifies the number of facets per edge between nodal planes and integration planes in the circumferential direction to display using PowerGraphics. This option is only valid with /ESHAPE,1 and RSYS,SOLU commands.
Tolerance value or number of facets per edge:
The generate option (
Action = GEN)
operates automatically on any current-technology axisymmetric element.
Any nodes within the tolerance value (
TOLER) of the axis are merged into a single node. The default tolerance
If you want to change the number of nodes, use the clear option
Action = CLEAR) before regenerating the
To cause the 3-D element plot to appear more like the actual
3-D model, use NAXIS,EFACET,
NUM > 1. In this case, the coordinate
system specified for displaying element and nodal results (RSYS) must
be solution (RSYS,SOLU); otherwise, ANSYS resets
NUM to 1.
