Based on solution #2057530 from the Ansys Customer Portal I would like to generate roughness on a cylindrical surface instead of a square one (as it is in the example) working with ADPL. I have tried to create a cylindrical coordinate system, enable it CSYS,1 and define radius instead of length as one of the parameters but with no success. Does anyone can help me to generate roughness peaks on a cylindrical surface in Mechanical? I am going to attach the square example and related ADPL commands. Thank you in advance for your support.

If you can access the solutions on the customer portal, may I request you to post the question as a SR instead?

I was able to access the customer portal but unable to post any requests. Now I cannot. I am very sorry if my inquiry does not follow this community's rules. If so, I will delete my post asap. Thank you for your understanding.

Hi Andrei, sorry for the confusion here, I don't think you would be able to log a service request. From your email address, I thought you were a commercial user. But for university users, this is the forum where you can post your questions.
Also, your post follows community guidelines well, so no need to delete the post.
Coming back to your query, Let me check it and get back to you, thanks for your patience!

Thank you for your answer. Indeed I am an University user. Thank you also for your time and willingness to assist me with my problem.

I can suggest different approach.
Create radius table
!create loop over
Create Gauss distribution table for radius
!create loop over
gauss_table(i,1)=use formula for gauss distribution as a function of r
!create loop over X and Y location

Thank you a lot for your interest and help. I will try to insert those as APDL commands if possible. Would it be too much to ask of you if I would ask for a working example saved maybe as an archive (with values for the radius, width and depth freely chosen)? Thank you again for all your efforts and kind advices.

I am sorry, Ansys employees can not share or download files from the student community!

That's OK. I will try to make the best of it. I would like to thank again Mr. rkumbhar for his time and effort in assisting me and of course all others for their patience and support. Thank you all.

andrei2020, just one suggestion. Please mark Rahul's answer as a solution if that solves your issue!
