- Mapdl.sph5(xedge1='', yedge1='', xedge2='', yedge2='', **kwargs)#
Create a spherical volume by diameter end points.
APDL Command: SPH5
Defines a solid spherical volume anywhere on the working plane by specifying diameter end points. The sphere must have a spatial volume greater than zero. (i.e., this volume primitive command cannot be used to create a degenerate volume as a means of creating an area.) A sphere of 360° will be defined with two areas, each consisting of a hemisphere. See the
sph4commands for other ways to create spheres.
- xedge1, yedge1
Working plane X and Y coordinates of one edge of the sphere.
- xedge2, yedge2
Working plane X and Y coordinates of the other edge of the sphere.
Volume number of the sphere.
This example creates a sphere with one point at
(1, 1)and one point at
>>> vnum = mapdl.sph5(xedge1=1, yedge1=1, xedge2=2, yedge2=2) >>> vnum 1
