Splitting Volume Error
 
I made a relatively simply shaped edge outline, created a face, and used the sweep face function to create a volume from this face. I tried to split this volume with another volume and got the error: can't operate on volume because it is linked for meshing, please remove links. I'm not sure why this is happening, but I haven't even dealt with any kind of meshing or links that I know of. How do I remove links or do whatever is required to split the volume?

in the mesh panel, go to volume (or surface). There is a icon Link Volume/Surface Mesh.
Right-click on the icon and the Unlink option appears.
Select All an apply.
Then retry your split

Thanks! I was able to get the split to work. I thought I tried unlinking the volume, but I must have overlooked it!

Hi
 
I have created a person (made of different volumes) in GAMBIT. The person is standing inside a big cube which in itself is a separate volume. I want to study the air flow inside the cube. Do I have to first split/subract or do anything like that with outside volume and the volumes inside it (person) or Can I just go ahead and create edge,face and then volume mesh for the whole thing without specifying any such relation between them?? someone told me it is necessary to split but when Im trying to split the person from the outside volume, it gives me an error "coincident face_face_ints with different body vertices". Can anyone help me??
I would greatly appreciate your response.

Thanks!
