Hi,

Is it possible to create a 3D face (in fact it must represent the ground around mountains) in gambit 2.0 only with points which don't have the same altitude ?

Thank's

Thank's mukkarum,

Hi,

I think u r using revers engineering, and getting points from laser scanner. Image viewer is best to fit a face on a number of points.

I think first create face in any other software and then import .igs format in gambit.

If you can, send the .dbs file to me.

I would try with somedifferent softwares.

You can also contact to fluent support to create face directly in gambit.

Thanks

Mukkarum

I have developped a code in C which reorganize my points in a regular grid. Then I have linked all the nodes 3 per 3 creating polygons...and now, it works
