Hello, I have a 2D surface meshed using tria-shell elements (Img 1) which I would like to use as a reference and mesh it onto the solid object (Img 2). Presently I need to define equivalence between both components which results in element distortion due mis-matched element's position and size. How can I use the shell elements of the surface component to "project/map" 3D elements in to the solid component? The solid component was created using the base surface and 3 addition surfaces as bounding surface. Regards
Hi, I have been trying to convert a surface shell mesh to a solid tetra mesh using the tetra mesh feature (see attached .hm file). "Topo Err: A join 2d region has no unique outer <2 found>" error was encountered and caused the abortion of solid mesh generation. I was wondering if it is possible to identify exactly which element(s) are problematic? and if there is a way to automatically clean up surface shell meshes? Many thanks, Wensong surface shell mesh problem.hm
Hi, I used the "Tetra Mesh" function to generate a 3D tetramesh from a surface shell mesh (tria elements). However, I noticed that after the tetramesh was generated. The surface shell mesh remains. Is it possible to somehow remove the tria shell elements while/after generating the tetra mesh? I have a nodeset that I would like to retain over this process. I tried generating the tetra mesh in a separate component and then delete the original shell mesh component to keep the tetra elements only. However, the nodeset was also deleted after removing the shell mesh. Cheers, Wensong
