Click the Element Distribution icon
from the Local Specifications toolbar.
The Edit Elements Distribution dialog box appears.
 Support: lets you select the edge on each you want
to impose nodes.
 Type:
 Uniform: the distance between all the distributed
nodes will be the same.
 Number of elements: lets you define the element
distribution by imposing a number of division on the selected
edge.
 Size: lets you define the element distribution
by imposing a mesh size on the selected edge.
 Arithmetic: the distance between the distributed
nodes will be defined by a common difference computed with the
following parameters.
 Number of Edges: lets you specify how many edges
you want.
 Size 2 / Size 1: lets you specify the ratio
between the lengths of the last and the first distribution
edge.
 Size at node 1: lets you specify the length of
the first edge of the distribution.
 Size at node 2: lets you specify the length of
the last edge of the distribution.

Note that you have to specify two and only
two parameters among the four. 
 Symmetric: lets you specify if the distribution
should be symmetric or not.
 Geometric: the distance between the distributed
nodes will be defined by a common ratio computed with the
following parameters.
 Number of Edges: lets you specify how many edges
you want.
 Size 2 / Size 1: lets you specify the ratio
between the lengths of the last and the first distribution
edge.
 Size at node 1: lets you specify the distance
between the two first nodes of the distribution.
 Size at node 2: lets you specify the distance
between the two last nodes of the distribution.

Note that you have to specify two and only
two parameters among the four. 
 Symmetric: lets you specify if the distribution
should be symmetric or not.
 User Law: the distance between the distributed
nodes will be defined by a knowledge law previously defined in
the Product Advisor workbench.
For more details about the user law, refer to the
Infrastructure User's Guide  Advanced Tasks  Using
Knowledgeware Capabilities.


A user law must have been defined. 
 Law: lets you select the desired law.
 Number of edges: lets specify how many edges you
want.
 Reverse direction: this button lets you reverse
the direction of distribution.


Select the edge on which you want to distribute nodes.
You can select several edges on the condition they
are continuous to each others.


Set the desired parameters in the Edit Elements
Distribution dialog box.

If needed, modify the number of the nodes or size. In
this case, enter 3 as new value (Number of elements).

Click OK in the Edit Elements Distribution
dialog box.
A Mesh Specifications.1 set containing the
Elements Distribution.1 specification appears in the
specification tree under the Surface Mesh.1 mesh part.
