The general format of the NODE record is:

NODE, node, x, y, z, flag, intens

where:

NODE

is the record keyword (MNODE with a metric model)

node

is the node number of the node

x,y,z

is the coordinate of the node in subunits (in or mm)

flag

is a coordinate system identifier

intens

is a stress intensification factor to be applied to the node. This value is not calculated but taken from a database attribute you already set.
