Prevents the screen erase between displays.

Compatible Products: – | Pro | Premium | Enterprise | Ent PP | Ent Solver | DYNA

Command Default

Issue the command with no arguments to prevent automatic screen erase before creating the next display.


Preventing the normal screen erase between requested displays allows you to overlay multiple views.

Clearing the screen with the ERASE command (Utility Menu> PlotCtrls> Erase Options> Erase screen) active simply clears the display area. Subsequent replots will provide the cumulative plots previously generated by the /NOERASE command.

For 3-D devices, you can issue /DV3D,DELS to suppress repeated screen overlays and generate clear contour plots.

Use the /ERASE command to reactivate automatic screen erase.

For 3-D devices (/SHOW,3D), the model in all active windows will be the same, even if you issue a different display command (NPLOT, EPLOT, etc.) for each active window. Use the Multi-Plot command (GPLOT) to display different entities, in different windows, on 3-D devices.

This command is valid in any processor.
