Adding Element Nodes

You can add new nodes to elements using the pet palette.

Adding a node to a straight linear element creates an additional element.

Adding a node to a polygon-type element increases the number of its edges.

In the 3D Window, you can add nodes only to polygonal elements.

To add a node to an element:

1.Select the element.

2.Click an edge of the element to bring up the pet palette.

3.Choose the Insert new node icon.

4.Click to define the location of the new node.

//     //

To insert a new node without moving it, double-click on a polygon edge. (The Insert node option must be active in the pet palette.)

Note: You cannot add a new node to a curved element or segment; if you click Insert new node on a curved element, the curved element will be straightened out.
