Mapdl.vclear(nv1='', nv2='', ninc='', **kwargs)[source]#

Deletes nodes and volume elements associated with selected volumes.


nv1, nv2, ninc

Delete mesh for volumes NV1 to NV2 (defaults to NV1) in steps of NINC (defaults to 1). If NV1 = ALL, NV2 and NINC are ignored and mesh for all selected volumes [VSEL] is deleted. If NV1 = 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 NV1 (NV2 and NINC are ignored).


Deletes all nodes and volume elements associated with selected volumes (regardless of whether the nodes or elements are selected). Nodes shared by adjacent meshed volumes and nodes associated with non-volume elements will not be deleted. Attributes assigned as a result of VATT are maintained. In the program’s response to the command, if a volume, area, line, or keypoint is tallied as “cleared,” it means either its node or element reference was deleted.
