L.S.,

Can anyone explain me how to use the tool surfaceCheck? Do I have to compile it first? And how?
I have a geometry which is very hard to mesh in Salome, using Netgen. Allthough the build-in geometry checks in Salome say that everything is fine, meshing fails all the time.
If anyone is willing to check my files, I can send them. It don't manage to copy them in this post.

Mark

surfaceCheck is in the standard release. The things to check for is that your surface is manifold/closed (i.e. every edge has two faces). Netgen has problems if your cell size is bigger than the feature size. Try meshing with more tets.
