Hi,

 

I sometimes encounters mesh voids in my simulations (see figure attached), and was wondering if there are features to semi-manually or automatically fill the voids or gaps with elements?

 

Thanks in advance.

If it is uniform void or in one plane it would be easy to fill void.But for such cases i feel manual method using F6 command (create element) would be useful.

Thanks Rahul, so automatic void filling is available if voids are on the same plane as surrounding elements? which feature is it?

 

Cheers

for filling hole i see some utilities are there.Utility menu: Geom/Mesh:Fill hole

 

I would like to check the Fill Hole feature but couldnt seem to find the Utility menu. Could you upload a screenshot to help me locating the menu?

 

Your help is much appreciated.

Thanks Rahul, for the video.

 

It seems like manual hole filling is the only option? Any reason why the Hole Fill option does not work?

 

I am asking because I will be dealing with a large number of situations like this so it would obviously be more convenient if this hole filling process can be a little bit more automated. 

 

Thanks a lot.

Fill hole will work with circular or partially circular shaped holes. I tried with a quadrilateral hole and came out without filling the gap.

 

The only way is to use 2D meshing options like ruled, spline etc... If the gap in mesh is continuous then you can use spline to fill.

 

Maybe someone can create an RFE for this.
