Areas#

These PREP7 commands are used to create, modify, list, etc., areas.

 `Mapdl.a`([p1, p2, p3, p4, p5, p6, p7, p8, ...]) Define an area by connecting keypoints. `Mapdl.aatt`([mat, real, type_, esys, secn]) Associates element attributes with the selected, unmeshed areas. `Mapdl.adele`([na1, na2, ninc, kswp]) Deletes unmeshed areas. `Mapdl.adgl`([na1, na2, ninc]) Lists keypoints of an area that lie on a parametric degeneracy. `Mapdl.adrag`([nl1, nl2, nl3, nl4, nl5, nl6, ...]) Generate areas by dragging a line pattern along a path. `Mapdl.afillt`([na1, na2, rad]) Generates a fillet at the intersection of two areas. `Mapdl.agen`([itime, na1, na2, ninc, dx, dy, ...]) Generates additional areas from a pattern of areas. `Mapdl.al`([l1, l2, l3, l4, l5, l6, l7, l8, ...]) Generate an area bounded by previously defined lines. `Mapdl.alist`([na1, na2, ninc, lab]) Lists the defined areas. `Mapdl.anorm`([anum, noeflip]) Reorients area normals. `Mapdl.aoffst`([narea, dist, kinc]) Generates an area, offset from a given area. `Mapdl.areverse`([anum, noeflip]) Reverses the normal of an area, regardless of its connectivity or mesh `Mapdl.arotat`([nl1, nl2, nl3, nl4, nl5, nl6, ...]) Generates cylindrical areas by rotating a line pattern about an axis. `Mapdl.arscale`([na1, na2, ninc, rx, ry, rz, ...]) Generates a scaled set of areas from a pattern of areas. `Mapdl.arsym`([ncomp, na1, na2, ninc, kinc, ...]) Generates areas from an area pattern by symmetry reflection. `Mapdl.askin`([nl1, nl2, nl3, nl4, nl5, nl6, ...]) Generates an area by "skinning" a surface through guiding lines. `Mapdl.asub`([na1, p1, p2, p3, p4]) Generates an area using the shape of an existing area. `Mapdl.asum`([lab]) Calculates and prints geometry statistics of the selected areas. `Mapdl.atran`([kcnto, na1, na2, ninc, kinc, ...]) Transfers a pattern of areas to another coordinate system. `Mapdl.gsum`(**kwargs) Calculates and prints geometry items. `Mapdl.splot`([na1, na2, ninc, mesh]) Displays the selected areas and a faceted view of their underlying
