Insert the same APDL Commands to Multiple Geometric Objects in Workbench

    • bc2021

      Is it possible via cut/paste to insert a repeated APDL command to multiple geometric objects at once? I can do it one at a time, but it's a bit tedious. I would to specify the same commands on 300 beams.

      You can copy/paste the command object from one geometry body to another

      It may be better to use a single command object to make the changes. For example, you can insert a command object under the analysis branch and make the changes to the beam
      Example commands to use:
      /prep7 ! go to preprocessor
      esel,s,enam,,188 !select all beam 188 elements
      ________ ! Use commands to modify the selected elements
      allsel ! make all elements active
      /solu !go to solution processor
