# Display element coordinate system using Ansys Mechcanical APDL

Is there any way to display element coordinate system in ANSYS Mechanical APDL GUI (the same way the global coordinates system is displayed)?

• Any idea? Anyone :) – Sysrq147 Jan 13 '17 at 14:38

Under the menu PlotCtrls > Symbols, you can find the following window where the option ESYS Element coordinate sys you are looking for is available.

As previously answered, it's also available via the following command:

/psymb,esys,1 ! or 0 to remove it.


You can look for /help,/psymb for more information.

I think the answer for yor question can be the following command. /PSYMB,ESYS,1

You can find further information in the software, through Help>Mechanical APDL>Command Reference>XVII. P
