[gambit] problem connecting faces on 2 volumes
 
Ok heres the problem i am facing. I am sketching a piping network in gambit and i used the revolve real face function to create the pipe elbows. This produces 2 faces on either side of the newly created pipe elbows. However, I am unable to connect the inlet and outlet faces of the pipe elbow to the adjecent faces of the straight length pipes. When i use the real connect function, nothing happens. When i use virtual method, it gives an error (faces not adjecent iinm). I am sure that the faces are in reality adjecent. Anyone can help me with this problem? I have the .dbs file ready if anyone is willing to take a look. Thanks in advance

You need to make sure that the verticies that are used to define the edges of the face match. If the edges are split in different locations, then GAMBIT doesn't consider the faces to be identical, and won't connect them.
