Hi all,

I am trying to use a coil for a refinement region. Is that possible to do that?
I know how to use, boxes, cylinders ... but there is no standard geometry for regions in sHM what is like a coil.?


How can I manage that?
Thanks in advance


Tobi

Okay now I generated a coil on that place with salome and exported it as STL file. After it I loaded that mesh with closedTriSurfaceMesh and used that as region ...

done
