contraction ctr

Adds contraction features to structural surfaces.
Adds contraction features to one or more existing structural surfaces in the geometry.
contraction Polygon_1 Adds a contraction feature to Polygon_1.
contraction Polygon_2 Polygon_3 Adds contraction features to Polygon_2 and Polygon_3.
contraction (Polygon_6 Polygon_4) Adds contraction features to Polygon_6 and Polygon_4.
contraction Group_1 Adds contraction features to all structural surfaces in Group_1. Group_1 should consist of only structural surfaces.

Geometry Global
Creates a structural surface between three or more points (which may either exist or will be created) and adds a contraction feature to it.
contraction Point_1 Point_2 (1 0 5) Creates a structural surface between Point_1, Point_2 and a new point with coordinates (0, 0, 5) and adds a contraction feature to it.

Mode Target
Geometry Global
Adds contraction features to one or more existing structural surfaces in the geometry and directly sets their properties.
contraction Polygon_1 "Distribution" "Axial increment" "C_inc_axial" 2.1 Adds a contraction feature to Polygon_1, sets the Distribution to "Axial increment" and the Cinc,axial to 2.1.
contraction (Polygon_2 Polygon_3) "Distribution" "Axial increment" "C_inc_axial" 2.1 Adds contraction features to Polygon_2 and Polygon_3, sets the Distribution to "Axial increment" and the Cinc,axial to 2.1 for both contractions.
