mesh creation
Hi to all,

I have question about mesh creation. I imported data from STL (box in box) file to ICEM. I would like to create mesh only between boxes (not in box inside) but I can't figure out how to do it. I checked manual and there is almost what I want, but only if I want just box inside all everythink.
Can anybody help?

Thank you very much.


EDIT: I tried different file type (parasolid) and it works how I expected. But if it's any way how to solve problem which I described I will be happy. Thank you.

Make sure you create a material body within the area you want to be meshed. (It is the button to the right of the mesh button in the Geometry tab)

As I wrote I chose different file format and it works. I will continue on this way.
Thanks for quick reply.
