Dear Giuseppe,
have you tried the command NUMSTR? You may need to combine it with the command NUMCMP.

Hi experts,

I have a question on NGEN command that I cannot be able to solve alone.


I have 243 nodes that I must copy along z for a distance = -0.7

How Can I copy them so that the copied nodes have a regular numbering?

For example 512000-512243??????

The first and last node that must be copied are number : 188759-188042.
As can be deduced the numbering of the nodes that need to be copied are not regular.

I would that copied nodes have a regular numbering?

I need regular numbering because, after, i have to create many elements between news nodes and I would use txt file to speed the process.

I have tried with the following command:

Ngen,243*2,10,188042,188759,1,,,-0.7

But I have the following warnings:

*** WARNING *** SUPPRESSED MESSAGE CP = 22.953 TIME= 11:16:12
Quadrilateral element 447083 has an angle between adjacent edges of
177.3 degrees, which exceeds the warning limit of 155 degrees.

*** WARNING *** SUPPRESSED MESSAGE CP = 22.953 TIME= 11:16:12
Quadrilateral element 441666 has an angle between adjacent edges of
178.3 degrees, which exceeds the warning limit of 155 degrees.

I have never used this command and I don't know if this thing is possible or not.

Thanks to all.

Giuseppi,

Similar to David's comment, you can also use a component name in the Node1 field. This behaviour is common across many commands and very useful. Try it out some of these options for yourself on a small test model with 10 or so nodes and see what happens.
