Meshing a complex geometry

Recommended Posts

I have the attached component. It is really giving me trouble for meshing. I have tried automatic geometry clean up and also defeature to remove small fillets. It seems that these options are not very powerful for geometry clean up. I want to create 3D tetramesh. I appreciate if you can help me with that. I have spent a lot of time on this component but no success. The stp file is attached. I don't need a fine mesh. A coarse mesh would be enough.

  Hi Bita,

 

If it is a very complex geometry, better you delete the solid and retain only the surface, carry the defeaturing anf geom cleanup and convert the surface back to solid.

 

@Rakesh patil In short, sT Inspire is a concept generation, analysis tool where you directly work on the geometry.

 

Here you can learn more about the tool:

sT Inspire is available for students as a part of Student Edition.

Solid Thinking is a tool for quick Design optimization.(Topology Optimization)

It uses Altair Simlab for meshing any component & Optistruct for analysis/Optimization.

 

Bita: I able to mesh shared part with tetrahedral element simlab. If you want two layers across thickness then that is also possible in simlab. Let me know if you need any help wrt to simlab.
