Edit the node coordinates

Description: Edits the coordinates of the node.

This is used when you want to adjust the coordinates of the created grid or to edit the coordinates of a grid whose data are read from an external file.

Grid coordinates are edited as follows:

  1. In [Object Browser], select [Grid] - [Grid shape] (Figure 312).
  2. Select the node whose coordinates you want to edit. (Refer to Select the node)
  3. Edit the coordinates of the selected node.

Figure 312 Example of the [Object Browser] window when [Grid shape] is selected

Edits the selected node (3) as follow:

Menu bar: [Grid] (G) –> [Edit] (E) –> [Grid Coordinates] (V)

When two or more nodes are selected, the [Edit grid coordinates] dialog (Figure 313) will open. When only one node is selected, the [Grid coordinates edit dialog] (Figure 314) will open.

Input the quantity of movement of the node in the [Edit Grid Coordinates] dialog (Figure 313) and the new coordinate of the node in the [Grid coordinates edit dialog] dialog (Figure 314). The [Grid Coordinates Edit] (Figure 314) dialog also displays the index of the selected node. (Index numbers start from 1.)

The node coordinates can be edited by mouse. When the mouse cursor is on a node, the cursor shape changes to an “open hand”. Left drag the node to move it.
