Sweep Mesh - All Quad Free Surface
 
2 Attachment(s)
Hi all,

I used the sweep method to make a full quad mesh of the simple geometry in attachement. This geometry was created with revolve, boolean and slice operations. Apparentrly ICEM's error is about too big aspect ratio and thus introduces thets elements. But why is that? :confused: Because of symmetry it shouldn't be a big deal.

Not sure...
 
I sometimes have better luck if I manually select source faces for a sweep...

But just looking at this, i can't tell what the problem is.

I will send you a separate note with my email address in case you are interested in sending the model for testing...

Anyone else out there have any ideas?

Problem Solved
 
Thank you for your interest and your response Simon.
I did what you just said, I manually selected the source and target and it did the trick ;).
Just for informations, my geometry was done in DesignModeler and cut with a plane of symmetry. Maybe that the model wasn't "clean" enough for the automatic sweep.

Another question : How do I mention that the problem is solved and that the topic can be closed?

I am glad that worked.

I don't know of a way to officially close a thread. Just stop writing on this thread and that will be that.

As for this issue of needing to select the source some times, better automatic source detection is a primary focus of development for the next release.
