how to repair geometry by another way
 
Friends

I've built a geometry, and when I try to make a mesh, it's appearing a notice I can't continue because my geometry has a hole and ask me if I want to fix it. If I say yes, it goes to Repair Mesh and it appears a red line in my geometry. I don't know what to do after... Someone can help me to repair the geometry (close the hole) by another way? Thanks

If you are talking about ICEM CFD - the red line is giving you the 'leakage' path of the mesh. First you need to determine what in the geometry is causing the 'leakage' - then you can figure out how to correct the geometry.

It appears that you need an additional surface there to close the hole. You can create the surface by selecting the edges and select submit.

I recommend to do this in the "geometry menu" before you go to the "meshing menu". Just make all surfaces "solid" to see if someting is missing, close all gaps and off you go.

Good luck, Gert-Jan

Check if you have defined all surfaces/families and don't forget to verfiy the tolerance if you are working with little geometries.
