Generates additional nodes from a pattern of nodes.
Do this generation operation a total of
ITIME times, incrementing all nodes in the given pattern
INC each time after the first.
ITIME must be > 1 for generation to occur.
Generate nodes from the pattern of nodes beginning
NODE2 (defaults to
NODE1) in steps of
NINC (defaults to 1). If
NODE1 = ALL,
NINC are ignored and the pattern is all selected nodes [NSEL]. If
NODE1 = P, graphical picking is
enabled and all remaining command fields are ignored (valid only in
the GUI). A component name may also be substituted for
NINC are ignored).
Node location increments in the active coordinate system (DR, Dθ, DZ for cylindrical, DR, Dθ, DΦ for spherical or toroidal).
Spacing ratio. Ratio of last division size to first division size. If > 1.0, divisions increase. If < 1.0, divisions decrease. Ratio defaults to 1.0 (uniform spacing).
Note: The average spacing
ratio remains 1.0, such that the location of the last generated set
will be the same regardless of
SPACE only serves to skew the position of the nodes
between the pattern set and the last set.
Generates additional nodes from a given node pattern. Generation is done in the active coordinate system. Nodes in the pattern may have been generated in any coordinate system.
This command is also valid in the /MAP processor.
