Maximum no. of mesh fixed at 100k in Gambit?
 
Hi,

Whenever I try to mesh a large mesh, Gambit always end the mesh at 100,000 cells although the meshing is incomplete. How do I increase the number of mesh possible in Gambit?

Thanks

memory size problem? or you may divide it into smaller regions to mesh separately

Hi David

I have 3GB of RAM and I dont think it's a limitation. I used to create 1-2 million mesh in Floworks.

I'll try your suggestion of dividing it into regions. Thanks :)

Go to Edit-> Defaults-> Trimesh-> Set Max face value as -1 to have no limit. Regards
