Hi,

I am writing a report about my FEM models built in ANSYS. For this report I need to illustate with a printscreen the numbering of the keypoints having a certain z coordinate along with the model's lines also having that z coordinate. The problems I am facing are basically:
-If I number the keypoints, they will all be numbered, and I need the section view of my part, there will be a lot of overlapping keypoints, so nothing will be clear.
-If I select the keypoints having a certain z coordinate, only the keypoints will apear, I would like to also have the lines which also have that coordinate.

-And, the numbers shown are very very small. How can I adjust their font size?

Thanks in Advance,

I don't understand very well your problem.

If you are interested in keypoints having, i.e., z=56, using

ksel,s,loc,z,56,56
and after

lslk,s,,,

So you select only the keypoints having z=56 as coordinate and select also the line atttached to these keypints.

I think that should be

lslk,s,1

to get only the lines attached to the selected key points.

Look at the /DEVICE,FONT,2,Val1,Val2,Val3,Val4,Val5,Val6 command

The numbers chosen for Val1..Val6 will change the node and keypoint fonts; the arguments depend on whether you are running on Linux or Windows.
