2d meshing in ansys meshing

Posted November 2, 2012 at 09:08 by diamondx

I remember in the past I was using the import features from solidworks with the plug-in features mentioned and also via various file formats such as IGES or Parasolid.

In order to avoid any errors with geometry and meshing I have decided to move to DesignModeller for most of my simple geometries. It saves so much time especially when undertaking a iterative design or optimisation study. Unless the geometry is complicated or represents some assembly which is used elsewhere, by members...

As for deleting curves, it really just makes them dormant. When you

You can create elements manually under the Edit Mesh tab.

Just lay them out to form the shape you want, including that little Y block region.

Then Extrude them up into Hexa blocks.

Then File => Blocking => Load from Unstructured mesh will turn those into a blocking file.

Then associate that blocking with

I have made the solver myself, so I used icoDyMFoam on the "movingConeMotion" tutorial, and the same behaviour is found for a decomposed case (2 processors).

My question is twofold: (i) Is it possible to
