Page D: Entity Display Interface

  • paged
  • Page D Interface

Purpose: This page is primarily for pre-processing. By default LS-PrePost only displays nodes, elements, and *CONSTRAINED_NODAL_RIGID_BODIES upon loading a keyword file, but the input file can have various other LS-DYNA entities such as sets, curves, contacts, rigidwalls, etc... These entities can be turned on for display by using the pageD interface.

Not all LS-DYNA entities can be displayed. Display capabilities have been added only for the most commonly used entities. These entities have been grouped together under related categories (example: SET contains beam, shell, node, part, segment, etc...).

Upon pressing the All button, all entities supported for display are shown in the graphics window (pressing None will then turn them back off). Within a sub-category list of entities, All, None, and Rev are provided for plotting only selected entities.

Controls:

All
 Turn on all entities
None
 Turn off all entities

  • Select entity type to be displayed:
  • Airbag / Bound / Cnstrained / Contact / Damping / Database / Define
  • Initial / Load / Set (shown) / SeatB / Rigidwall / SElement / Section

All
 Turn on all entities in the current list
None
 Turn off all entities in the current list
Rev
 Reverse selection
AList
 Turn on all entities in the selected range only
