I have a beam structure in the form of a Helix. How do I add the nodes positioned on this helix using ANSYS APDL ?

I need to add the locations and IDs in separte sets.

  • $\begingroup$ What do you mean by "add the nodes"? Is it the node numbers? Also, do you intend to plot their locations? $\endgroup$ – Öskå Oct 8 '19 at 5:30
  • $\begingroup$ Dear @Oska, I wrote : nodes' IDs. I need to use the ID and locations of each node in a next operation $\endgroup$ – FabioSpaghetti Oct 8 '19 at 5:52
  • $\begingroup$ Is there any need to plot them? If not, select your lines, then nodes attached, and the *get function will be your friend. You can update your answer with a small working example if you wish. $\endgroup$ – Öskå Oct 8 '19 at 17:53
