In thermal-structural coupling, how to select all active units to load the temperature field

      I do 3D printing simulations, and I use the life-and-death cell method to simulate the temperature field, and then 

      We need to load the temperature field to get the stress field.  I also used the life and death element method to activate the killed elements in a cycle, so does anyone know how to select all the active elements and apply a temperature field?

      The main question is how to select all the active elements. (The apdl code is attached below, mainly because I chose the wrong area to load and the result was wrong )
