Convert 2d geometry in 3d Solid

Recommended Posts

Hi i have to study the displacement on a tube. I need 3d mesh because i have to choose the material. I have as material MAT1 and as property PSOLID (i don't want PSHELL). The problem is that when i selected the surfaces with "bounding surfaces" it doesn't transform in solid because " no closed volume found".


This is one image of the tube. 


What else can i do?


Thank you very much

In your case, the geometry is so simple. So you not need a (geometrical) solid to build your 3D mesh.


Just do a 2D mesh on a section and 3D > Drag > Drag element.


That's all.

I created the 2d mesh on the section, create 3d>drag and i obtained the model in the image. When i start the simulation i have this error


 

 *** ERROR # 2372 ***

 No PSHELL properties exist in the bulk data

 

But i take PSOLID as property. Why this happens? I don't understand

Thank you very much for your time.

 

 

Finally i did it, i forgot to delete the 2D elements. Thank you
