Hi , I wanted to mesh a lot of lines with variable lengths in model by using tcl script, but I found the sample script in help is not intelligent, for example *createmark lines 1 15 18 *linemesh_preparedata lines 1 30 *linemesh_saveparameters 0 3 0 0 *linemesh_saveparameters 1 2 0 0 *linemesh_savedata1 1 5 0 0 The parameter "density" in line 3 and 4 are manually assigned, and the "segment" and "density" parameteres must be strictly matched. If the length of each line are different, the density are also different. So, a lot of *linemesh_saveparameters commands are needed. It is not acceptable for this meshing scripting. So, is there a way to mesh lines with constant element size?
1D Elements are created in Line by using 1D --> Line Mesh option. All lines are mesh, which shows the nodes while meshing. After Elements are created, by using Cross section visualization tool, Some Elements are not having the Cross sectional property. Which is displayed as a line only. Other lines are displayed as Circular cross section.
