Mapdl.mgen(itime='', inc='', node1='', node2='', ninc='', **kwargs)#

Generates additional MDOF from a previously defined set.

APDL Command: MGEN

itime, inc

Do this generation operation a total of ITIMEs, incrementing all nodes in the set by INC each time after the first. ITIME must be > 1 for generation to occur. All previously defined master degree of freedom directions are included in the set. A component name may also be substituted for ITIME.

node1, node2, ninc

Generate master degrees of freedom from set beginning with NODE1 to NODE2 (defaults to NODE1) in steps of NINC (defaults to 1). If NODE1 = ALL, NODE2 and NINC are ignored and set is all selected nodes [NSEL]. If NODE1 = P, graphical picking is enabled and all remaining command fields are ignored (valid only in the GUI).


Generates additional master degrees of freedom from a previously defined set. If used in SOLUTION, this command is valid only within the first load step.

This command is also valid in PREP7.
