APDL Command to define axis of rotation for 3D body.

      Hi, I'm relatively new to APDL Command feature in ANSYS Mechanical. I wanted to simulate imbalance mass on my 3D rotor dynamic body however I need to define an axis to do so. The 3D model were developed in other CAD software (Solidworks). Can you advice me on how to define the axis of rotation for 3D body using APDL Command.nn

      ,nIn workbench when you specify a rotational velocity, it asks you for the axis of rotation. What do you need the command snippet for?nRegards,nIshan.n n

      Yes, but when I use a 3D model I don't have any line located at the center of the cylinder to indicate it as the axis of rotation. That is why I wanted to use APDL Command for this. nn
