## Function

- Renumber the existing element (node) numbers in the order of priority for each GCS direction.

## Call

From the main menu, select **[Node/Element] > [Numbers] > [Renumbering] > [Renumbering Element]**

## Input

Renumbering Element ID dialog box

#### Click to the right of Renumbering

Display the Element Table

### Start Number

**Start Node Number**

Define Starting Node number by clicking .

**Start Element Number**

Define Starting Element number by clicking .

### Renumbering Target

**Node** : Renumber node numbers

**Element** : Renumber element numbers

**Node & Element** : Renumber node and element numbers

### Sorting Order

**By Global Axes** : Apply new element (node) numbers in the order of priority by Global Axes.

**1st** : Assign an axis with the highest priority when renumbering elements (nodes).

**2nd** : Assign an axis with the second priority

**3rd** : Assign the remaining axis

### Selection Type

**All** : All the elements (nodes) are targeted

**By Selection** : The selected elements (nodes) are targeted

### New Start Number

**Node** : New starting node number

**Element** : New starting element number

### Renumbering Option

**Cartesian Coordinate** : Apply new element (node) numbers in the order of priority by Global Axes.

**1st** : Assign an axis with the highest priority when renumbering elements (nodes).

**2nd** : Assign an axis with the second priority

**3rd** : Assign the remaining axis

**Cylindrical Coordinate** : Apply cylindrical coordinates and align based on user-defined cylindrical coordinate system.

Sorting Order is determined by the coordinates.

In other words, the numbering starts in a sequence from the node with the smallest coordinate to the node with the largest coordinate in the axis with the highest priority. When the coordinates of more than one node are equal in an assigned axis, the numbering restarts in the axis with the next priority from the node with the smallest coordinate.
