How to save all nodes of a line set into a node set for force extraction


In GraphiX, I want to save all nodes touching to a set of lines into a node set for force extraction later in CalculiX. I do this as follows:

seta load_sum l l5 l13
send load_sum abq nam

However, the two extreme nodes seem to be excluded from the created node set.

How can I include all nodes?


maybe you have to “comp” your sets.
these will includes the outer nodes.
sometimes you have to use the command twice.
please have a look into the manual:


This keyword is used to add all entities to the specified set (see seta) which depend on the already included entities (u, up), or to include all entities necessary to describe the already included entities (d, down).
