Mesh edit - Translate a group of nodes in Ansys Mechanical


I wonder how I can translate a group of nodes in Ansys Mechanical once the mesh has been generated. I have found "Node move", but that is not sufficient. Is there any other way to do this? I heard that it can be done with ACT script. In that case, how is that done?

Just to be clear, I do not mean adding a displacement in a load step. I mean editing the mesh. Thanks.

    Insert a Mechanical Model from the Components section of Workbench, then drop a Static Structural on that new Mechanical Model.

    Open the Mechanical Model (system C in this example). Here you an transform the geometry and mesh to a new coordinate system using the Worksheet.
