Mapdl.nlist(node1='', node2='', ninc='', lcoord='', sort1='', sort2='', sort3='', kinternal='', **kwargs)#

Lists nodes.


node1, node2, ninc

List nodes from NODE1 to NODE2 (defaults to NODE1) in steps of NINC (defaults to 1). If NODE1 = ALL (default), NODE2 and NINC are ignored and all selected nodes [NSEL] are listed. 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 NODE1 (NODE2 and NINC are ignored).


Coordinate listing key:

(blank) - List all nodal information

COORD - Suppress all but the XYZ coordinates (shown to a higher degree of accuracy than

when displayed with all information).


First item on which to sort. Valid item names are NODE, X, Y, Z, THXY, THYZ, THXZ

sort2, sort3

Second and third items on which to sort. Valid item names are the same as for SORT1.


Internal nodes listing key:

(blank) - List only external nodes.

INTERNAL - List all nodes, including internal nodes.


Lists nodes in the active display coordinate system [DSYS]. Nodal coordinate rotation angles are also listed (relative to the global Cartesian coordinate system).

Node listing can be in a sorted order (ascending). SORT2, for example, will be carried out on nodes having equal values of SORT1.

This command is valid in any processor.
