Meshing problem...

I have experienced problems creating a surface mesh using CFX 5.5.1 on a linux system, the problem being that I can't create a surface mesh. CFX complains about some topology error. I created a test model that consisted of a simple cylinder and had the same problem.

The strange thing is that I ftp:d my model to an alpha based machine and the converted model worked just fine.

Has anyone experienced anything similar to this?

Many thanks,

Gustaf Mårtensson

Hi Gustaf,

Can you describe the nature of the problem?

Hey Glenn,

The nature of the problem,... well, I do the whole thing with geometry, domain,... et cetera. I can verify the topology of the solid, but when I try to create a surface mesh I get an error message,

No warning or error messages found

That didn't help much. I looked in the log window and saw something that might be important,

$# Surface mesh mode not found in database : setting to Delaunay

I can send you the screenshots if you'd like.
