  • position dialog
  • Figure 1 - Position Dialog

Position Dialog:

This dialog is used by the following interfaces: ElGen, ElEdit, Guide, BlockM, BMesh, Mesh, SphGen, and Vector Operation.

  • rb Global - Use global coordinate system
  • rbs Local - Use local coordinate system

Coord
 Popup dialog to select local coordinate system by ID (or key in)

  • Px: Enter X coordinate of point
  • Py: Enter Y coordinate of point
  • Pz: Enter Z coordinate of point

  • rbs Position - Pick position
  • rb Node - Pick node
  • rb C_Element - Get center of picking element
  • rb C_Edge - Get center edge
  • rb Avg_cen - Get averaged center of selected nodes or elements
  • rb 3Ptcircle - Get center of selected nodes or elements

Compute
 Get center of selected area

Done
 Accept new position
Cancel
 Exit dialog

  • NID: Input node ID

Create Node
