i := struct.node.maxid

Get the maximum component-ID number assigned to any structural node in this model. The next structural node created will be assigned this value plus one.


Unlike other objects in FLAC3D, ID numbers for structural objects (elements, links, and nodes) refer to collections of elements and associated objects created together and representing a single overall structure. For structural objects, the unique, internally assigned ID number associated with the object is called the component-ID number. See the function.

Returns:i - maximum component-ID number of any structural node in the model
