I am a complete novice in APDL. I am comparing the stresses (Transient Thermal + Static Structural) of a larger assembly for multiple geometries of its specific components. So, in order to be able to compare all cases on a unified scale, I need to adjust min and max values of stresses in all contour plots. I tried editing them directly on the contour plots. While the min value can be edited, the max value is not editable.
Then, I came up with this post: /Contour Function on Mechanical APDL (ansys.com), which seems to solve my problem. However, I am not sure how to make /Contour work for individual specific bodies and surfaces.
Any example or help would be highly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

So say we have two parts and added them (elements) into a component (use CM,CMENA,ELEM, and CM,CMTWO,ELEM ) and so we can select them separately via cmsel, then this plots (using /contour) stress results of them separately:
All the best

Thank you very much for your asnwer. So, if there are more than two objects, should I define them all? In fact, I have 49 objects. Would I need 49 blocks of this piece?
