`KCNTO`

Reference number of coordinate system where the pattern is to be transferred. Transfer occurs from the active coordinate system.

`INC`

Increment all nodes in the given pattern by

to form the transferred node pattern.`INC`

,`NODE1`

,`NODE2`

`NINC`

Transfer nodes from pattern beginning with

to`NODE1`

(defaults to`NODE2`

) in steps of`NODE1`

(defaults to 1). If`NINC`

= ALL,`NODE1`

and`NODE2`

are ignored and the pattern is all selected nodes [`NINC`

**NSEL**]. If= P, graphical picking is enabled and all remaining command fields are ignored (valid only in the GUI). A component may be substituted for`NODE1`

(`NODE1`

and`NODE2`

are ignored).`NINC`

Transfers a pattern of nodes from one coordinate system to another. Coordinate systems may be translated and rotated relative to each other. Initial pattern may be generated in any coordinate system. Coordinate values are interpreted in the active coordinate system and are transferred directly.

A model generated in one coordinate system may be transferred
to another coordinate system. The user may define several coordinate
systems (translated and rotated from each other), generate a model
in one coordinate system, and then repeatedly transfer the model to
other coordinate systems. The model may be generated in any type
of coordinate system (Cartesian, cylindrical, etc.) and transferred
to any other type of coordinate system. Coordinate values (X, Y,
Z, or R, θ, Z, or etc.) of the model being transferred
are interpreted in the *active* coordinate
system type, regardless of how they were generated. Values are transferred
directly and are interpreted according to the type of coordinate system
being transferred to. For example, transferring from a Cartesian
coordinate system to a cylindrical coordinate system (not recommended)
would cause X = 2.0 and Y = 3.0 values to be directly interpreted
as R = 2.0 and θ = 3.0 values, respectively.

This command is also valid in the **/MAP** processor.
