Hi guys;

I have imported a file from Solidworks to Gambit. It is a simple body of a solar car.The purpose is to create CFD by using Fluent.

Can anybody help me how to start with Gambit in order to mesh the body? any useful tutorial?

There should be a tutorial in GAMBIT that is something like importing and cleaning geometry .... sedan. I do not remember the exact title but it is something to this effect. Try that. It should guide you through.

Thanks Issac for your help.

Following the Sedan Geometry Tutorial, I meshed the body of the car but:

"After the whole process, meshes just can be seen for the edges not for the whole body (just very small lines around the car)!!!"

also, it seems very strange that when I import the file from Solidworks to Gambit, the whole edges are in blue which means the edges are fully connected without any cleaning!!!

Does any body have any idea and can give me a hint?

thanks
