How can I use a user-specified contour range for von-mises stress while animating it?
The animation is produced by the ANCNTR command, a macro in the APDL directory.
In the macro you will find the line below. If you comment out this line the animation will
use your user-specified contour range. You can rename the macro something like MY_ANCNTR.MAC
and run that instead.
/CONT,ALL,_NUM,_MIN,,_CMX ! Remove this line
