Information: General information about the assignments, node coordinates, etc.
This command shows several kinds of information (element ID’s, group ID’s etc.) for selected elements. By pressing “Element selection” a new selection can be defined several times, from which the assignments are displayed.
Following dialog shows the available options:
Group IDs, Element types, Mechanical IDs, Color indices, Layer IDs: With these buttons there will be shown the existing ID’s within the structure together with the number of assignments.
Element IDs: The distribution of element ID’s will be shown. First and last ID shows each continuous range of ID’s.
Node ID: The distribution of node ID’s will be shown. First and last ID shows each continuous range of ID’s.
Coordinate systems: The ID and type of currently defined local coordinate systems are shown.
Node distance: After pressing this button 2 nodes must be repeatedly selected within the graphics window. The distance between these nodes will be calculated and shown.
Angle: After pressing this button 3 nodes must be repeatedly selected within the graphics window. The angle within the first node will be shown.
Node coordinates: After pressing this button the nodes whose coordinates should be displayed have to be selected graphically. If a local coordinate system is selected in the list box the coordinates are shown in reference to this coordinate system.
xyz-limits: Maximal and minimal x,y- and z-coordinates are shown. If a local coordinate system is selected in the list box the coordinate limits are shown in reference this coordinate system.
