Default How to edit point coordinates in ICEM?

I am beginner at CFX and now I study ICEM grid generator. I wonder how I can edit point coordinates in ICEM?

I found that after point creation I can't modify its coordinates. I can delete it and create again with new coordinates but I did not find how to modify coordinates of existing point.

Please, help me.

Alexey.

Hi Alexey,

I dont think that feature is available in ICEM, do you know any mesh generator that allows that?

I am also new to ICEM, but I've also tried to edit geometries without deleting them - but it doesn't seem possible.

Please let me know if you figure it out.

Best

Christian

You can not edit any point in ICEM. You need to create new point and also curves & surfaces attached to it if any.

I do not know any meshing software that does it. Dedicated geometry building / modelling software can do this.

Yes, it seems it is impossible.

I found the following possibility: Tab Mesh -> Move Nodes (icon with arrow and two bold spots) Unfortunately this function does not act upon points.

As I know STAR-CD can modify existing points. . .

I have many problems with ICEM 11.0. For example, when I try to make blocking initialization (after primitive geometry creation " 4 points and 4 lines) often error occurs:

Error meshing edge 22 14

And instead of white block rectangle two infinity lines appear . . .

What is the matter? I don't know. . .

Yeah, it is possible. You can translate, rotate it, copy it or even edit its x,y,z locations if you open the .tin file in a text editor.

James, thanks a lot! It is really solution of this problem but it looks a perversion . . .

Thank you.

Yes - Simply go to the Move/Copy Geometry icon. From there you can select points, curves, and/or surfaces. Then you simply enter the translation values (X,Y, and/or Z) and move the point.
