class main_menu.mesh.manage(path, service)#

Enters the manage cell zones menu.

active_list(*args, **kwargs)#

Lists all active zones.

adjacent_face_zones(*args, **kwargs)#

Lists all face zones that refer to the specified cell zone.

auto_set_active(*args, **kwargs)#

Sets the active zones based on points that are defined in an external file. For each zone you want to activate, you need to specify the coordinates of a point in the zone, the zone type (for example, fluid), and (optionally) a new name. A sample file is shown below:.

change_prefix(*args, **kwargs)#

Enables you to change the prefix for the cell zone.

change_suffix(*args, **kwargs)#

Change the suffix for specified face zones.

copy(*args, **kwargs)#

Copies all nodes and faces of specified cell zones.

delete(*args, **kwargs)#

Deletes a cell zone, along with its associated nodes and faces. When deleting cell zones that contain poly cells, you will be warned that the original mesh needs to be deleted and the original faces restored prior to remeshing the volumetric region.

get_material_point(*args, **kwargs)#

Prints the coordinates of the material point for the specified cell zone. If the cell zone is non-contiguous, the get-material-point command will print a list of material points, one for each contiguous region.

id(*args, **kwargs)#

Specifies a new cell zone ID. If a conflict is detected, the change will be ignored.

list(*args, **kwargs)#

Prints information on all cell zones.

merge(*args, **kwargs)#

Merges two or more cell zones. For object-based merge, the selected zones must be in the same volumetric region. If not, you will have to merge the volumetric regions first using /objects/volumetric-regions/merge. If the volumetric regions cannot be merged because they are not contiguous, you will have to delete the object(s) only before merging the cell zones.

merge_dead_zones(*args, **kwargs)#

Enables you to merge dead zones having a cell count lower than the specified threshold value, with the adjacent cell zone. The result of the merge operation is determined by the type of the adjacent cell zone and the shared face area. The priority for merging with the adjacent cell zone based on type is fluid > solid > dead (that is, merging with an adjacent fluid zone takes priority over merging with an adjacent solid zone, which in turn takes priority over merging with a dead zone). Also, if the adjacent zones are of the same type (for example, fluid), the zone will be merged with the zone having the largest shared face area.

name(*args, **kwargs)#

Enables you to rename a cell zone.

origin(*args, **kwargs)#

Specifies a new origin for the mesh, to be used for cell zone rotation. The default origin is (0,0,0).

revolve_face_zone(*args, **kwargs)#

Generates cells by revolving a face thread.

rotate(*args, **kwargs)#

Rotates all nodes of specified cell zones by a specified angle.

rotate_model(*args, **kwargs)#

Rotates all nodes of the model by a specified angle.

scale(*args, **kwargs)#

Scales all nodes of specified cell zones by a specified factor.

scale_model(*args, **kwargs)#

Scales all nodes of the model by a specified factor.

set_active(*args, **kwargs)#

Sets the specified cell zones to be active.

translate(*args, **kwargs)#

Translates all nodes of specified cell zones by a specified vector.

translate_model(*args, **kwargs)#

Translates all nodes of the model by a specified vector.

type(*args, **kwargs)#

Changes the type and name of a cell zone.
