Hey,

Ive got a problem with generate a surface in ICEM. I want to create a surface including 4 curves (pic.1). The surface is "ok" (pic.2). But when im looking closely (pic.3), you can see that there is an additional curve and the surface isnt referenced on the curve, which was choosen.

Can anybody explaine whta was happend?

thx Simon

Hi Simon,

You can try to set up a better tolerance number for you curve. Have you tried to see the curve with "show full" option?

Thanks,

but I think "show full" is only a viewing option and no tolerance option?

Do you have geometry file? Can you share it?

Try this by reducing model tolerances under general -> model.

You are right, but the option "show full" displays the surface triangulation as it actually is. The other options show simplifications of your model.

Hello,

ive got a problem with the geometry tool in ICEM. I want to close a gap between surfaces on an edge. I ve got a very thin first layer and when there is a gap, there will be a wrong mesh. I tried the tool to close the gaps, but I think the tolerance is to high.

How can I adjust the merge tolerance?

Thx
