 March 7, 2002, 05:32 Re: Parametric Modeling with GAMBIT #2 Phil Guest   Posts: n/a Im not entirely sure i can visualise the shape that describes without checking my rusty maths, does it have an axis of revolution? if so create an ellipse and revolve it in gambit, or perhaps create a sphere then use the grid scale function in Fluent to stretch the sphere into the geometry you require.

 March 7, 2002, 07:28 Re: Parametric Modeling with GAMBIT #3 David Shkval Guest   Posts: n/a Thank u Phil but this entity has three different length axes, so to revolve a half ellipse will not get the proper result. as above, to scale will not give us the exact volume. So what i need is a precisely built ellipsoid as the equation described. David

 March 7, 2002, 07:37 Re: Parametric Modeling with GAMBIT #4 Phil Guest   Posts: n/a Is it imperative the volume is exact, could scaling a sphere not give a volume and geometry close to what you want to analyse? Have you tried creating the volume in a CAD package and importing? sorry its not much help
