Exporting blocking/mesh for a similar geometry By simon

Posted January 6, 2013 at 18:23 by diamondx

During import, you can also associate the new geometry file with the old tetin file so all the family sizes, etc. are preserved... This is an option near the top of the import DEZ.

Then load the old blocking file and update the associations.

If they don't all auto associate properly, you can use the interactive controls to adjust things...

scale factor By simon

Posted January 6, 2013 at 18:17 by diamondx

Scale factor lets you adjust all the sizes in the model at once...

By default, you should probably leave it as 1, which means that all the other sizes could be taken at face value.

Then if you want to make the model 20% coarser, you can come back and set the scale factor as 1.2. Get it?

Scale Factor times Max Element size gives you the largest element in your model. For Octree, this is the size of the initial subdivision when Octree is first initialized....
