# Lines#

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

 `Mapdl.bsplin`([p1, p2, p3, p4, p5, p6, xv1, ...]) Generate a single line from a spline fit to a series of keypoints. `Mapdl.circle`([pcent, rad, paxis, pzero, ...]) Generate circular arc lines. `Mapdl.l`([p1, p2, ndiv, space, xv1, yv1, ...]) Define a line between two keypoints. `Mapdl.l2ang`([nl1, nl2, ang1, ang2, phit1, phit2]) Generates a line at an angle with two existing lines. `Mapdl.l2tan`([nl1, nl2]) Generates a line tangent to two lines. `Mapdl.lang`([nl1, p3, ang, phit, locat]) Generate a straight line at an angle with a line. `Mapdl.larc`([p1, p2, pc, rad]) Define a circular arc. `Mapdl.larea`([p1, p2, narea]) Generate the shortest line between two keypoints on an area. `Mapdl.lcomb`([nl1, nl2, keep]) Combines adjacent lines into one line. `Mapdl.ldele`([nl1, nl2, ninc, kswp]) Deletes unmeshed lines. `Mapdl.ldiv`([nl1, ratio, pdiv, ndiv, keep]) Divides a single line into two or more lines. `Mapdl.ldrag`([nk1, nk2, nk3, nk4, nk5, nk6, ...]) Generates lines by sweeping a keypoint pattern along path. `Mapdl.lextnd`([nl1, nk1, dist, keep]) Extends a line at one end by using its slope. `Mapdl.lfillt`([nl1, nl2, rad, pcent]) Generate a fillet line between two intersecting lines. `Mapdl.lgen`([itime, nl1, nl2, ninc, dx, dy, ...]) Generates additional lines from a pattern of lines. `Mapdl.llist`([nl1, nl2, ninc, lab]) Lists the defined lines. `Mapdl.lreverse`([lnum, noeflip]) Reverses the normal of a line, regardless of its connectivity or mesh `Mapdl.lrotat`([nk1, nk2, nk3, nk4, nk5, nk6, ...]) Generates circular lines by rotating a keypoint pattern about an axis. `Mapdl.lsscale`([nl1, nl2, ninc, rx, ry, rz, ...]) Generates a scaled set of lines from a pattern of lines. `Mapdl.lstr`([p1, p2]) Define a straight line irrespective of the active coordinate system. `Mapdl.lsum`(**kwargs) Calculates and prints geometry statistics of the selected lines. `Mapdl.lsymm`([ncomp, nl1, nl2, ninc, kinc, ...]) Generates lines from a line pattern by symmetry reflection. `Mapdl.ltan`([nl1, p3, xv3, yv3, zv3]) Generate a line at the end of, and tangent to, an existing line. `Mapdl.ltran`([kcnto, nl1, nl2, ninc, kinc, ...]) Transfers a pattern of lines to another coordinate system. `Mapdl.spline`([p1, p2, p3, p4, p5, p6, xv1, ...]) Generate a segmented spline through a series of keypoints. `Mapdl.ssln`([fact, size]) Selects and displays small lines in the model.
