I am trying to manually mesh something using the LESIZE command in APDL. The documentation says that the syntax is the following:
LESIZE, NL1, SIZE, ANGSIZ, NDIV, SPACE, KFORC, LAYER1, LAYER2, KYNDIV
From what I understand, if I input a negative value for LAYER1, then the magnitude of LAYER1 should specify how many layers in the mesh have the size specified in SIZE.
For example, if I write: LESIZE, all, 0.1, , , 1, 1, -5, ,0
then I would expect that the value of -5 in LAYER1 implies that there should be 5 rows of elements with an edge size of 0.1. I am not observing this in the model. So either, I have misinterpreted the meaning of LAYER1 or I am missing something.
Any suggestions to get LAYER1 working would be appreciated. It seems like it would come in handy for my model.
