Generates a scaled set of volumes from a pattern of volumes.
Set of volumes (
NINC) that defines the pattern to be scaled.
NV2 defaults to
to 1. If
NV1 = ALL,
ignored and the pattern is defined by all selected volumes. If
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).
Scale factors to be applied to the X, Y, and Z keypoint coordinates
in active coordinate system (RR, Rθ, RZ for
cylindrical; RR, Rθ, RΦ for spherical). Note that the Rθ
and RΦ scale factors are interpreted
as angular offsets. For example, if CSYS
of (1.5,10,3) would scale the specified keypoints 1.5 times in the radial
and 3 times in the Z direction, while adding an offset of 10 degrees to the
keypoints. Zero, blank, or negative scale factor values are assumed to be
1.0. Zero or blank angular offsets have no effect.
Increment to be applied to keypoint numbers for generated set. If zero, the lowest available keypoint numbers will be assigned [NUMSTR].
Specifies whether nodes and elements are also to be generated:
Nodes and elements associated with the original volumes will be generated (scaled) if they exist.
Nodes and elements will not be generated.
Specifies whether volumes will be moved or newly defined:
Additional volumes will be generated.
Original volumes will be moved to
new position (
Generates a scaled set of volumes (and their corresponding keypoints, lines, areas, and mesh) from a pattern of volumes. The MAT, TYPE, REAL, and ESYS attributes are based on the volumes in the pattern and not the current settings. Scaling is done in the active coordinate system. Volumes in the pattern could have been generated in any coordinate system. However, solid modeling in a toroidal coordinate system is not recommended.
