/FACET
  /FACET,FINE,n
Changes tesselation where n is from 0 (coarsest, default) to 10 (finest). For XOX Shapes geometry only (IGES default importing or Connection Kit "Allow defeature" importing) Functionality replaced by GMFACE command (see below). [5.5 Beta]

ANF File Format
  The ANF File format is used by CADfix and the Connection Kit products to define ANSYS geometry, especially in the context of translating CAD geometries into ANSYS. This document covers the commands used in the ANF files.

GMFACE
  GMFACE,FINE,n
Same function as /FACET,FINE,n above, controls tesselation of area where n is from 0 (coarsest, default) to 10 (finest). For XOX Shapes geometry only (IGES default importing or Connection Kit "Allow defeature" importing) [5.5, documented in 5.6 in Errata]
The GMFACE command can be issued before the default IGES import, or after import in TOPO REPAIR. In TOPO REPAIR, you can issue the command repeatedly (with APLOTs in between) until the desired level of refinement has been achieved. Once you end TOPO REPAIR (by pressing FINISH or issuing GAPFINISH), the GMFACE command has no effect.

IOPTN
  IOPTN,FILTER,value
Filters IGES entities, including construction, infinite, blank, and lower-order entities (entities not used for BREP construction).
IOPTN,FILTER,ALL (ON) - Default behavior to filter all undesirables
IOPTN,FILTER,NONE - Turn off filtering and get everything
IOPTN,FILTER,BLANK - Filter only the blank entities (not to be displayed)
IOPTN,FILTER,LOWER - Filter the lower order entities and keep everything else

SPLOT
  SPLOT,area_min,area_max,area_inc,mesh
where 'area_min' is beginning area number, 'mesh' is the amount of lines to put on the surface (like a wireframe tesselation). I think this 'mesh' argument is what J. Crawford referred to as 'contour lines'. (That's a better description, actually) [6.0]

By default, if you just issue SPLOT with no arguments, it plots all surfaces with a 'surface mesh density' (wireframe tessellation density) of 4, I think.

Plot surfaces ANSYS uses for basis for geometric areas (similar to surface/face analogy in CADfix); works in 5.4 but will cause 5.5-5.7.0 to crash. Reintroduced at 5.7.1 and 6.0.

With the improvements to the solid modeling capabilities in ANSYS 6.0, the SPLOT command became more relevant in detecting potential problems with geometry.
