Default Ansys meshing - unwanted edge splits

Hi there,

I am having an awkward problem in Ansys (14.5) - workbench - design modeler - mesher. Perhaps it is obvious to some of you ... could you please help me on that?

In Design modeler I have a continuous edge (top figure). I then save and import it to the mesher (i.e. "update geometry from source"). This edge (but also several onthers) in the mesher appear segmented to small and large parts that I would like to avoid for a good sweeping. The geometry is parametric, so virtual topology here is not an option.

I am attaching also a picture in the hope that somebody has a trivial answer.

Thanks for the potential help, and sucess!

in Design modeller, use share topology option, then it highlight problem of edges
These edges occurs when the bodies are connected to other bodies.
if possible use virtual topology option in mesh may be it merge the edges and faces

Hi Alparmat,

Hopefully this helps: click on the part in the DesignModeller tree, and in the details view, change the ‘Shared Topology Method’ to ‘Imprints’. If this option is not selected, the edges may be split when brought into Ansys Mechanical.

Best regards, Jon
