Hi,

I'm making mesh in pointwise. I originally had it scaled in mm. I decided I decided I wanted to export the mesh in meters. So I did a transformation on the whole thing. Now that it is at a smaller scale I have problems drawing connectors that are close together. They become poles if they're too short or it won't all me to draw them.

I'm assuming there is a setting somewhere I must change but I can't seem to find which one.

Thanks for the help.

Decrease the node and connector tolerance (i.e. make number smaller) so that Pointwise does not auto-merge them together.

Briefly, the values mean if my node/connectors are separated by less than the tolerance, merge them into one.

Same goes for grid point tolerance but it's two orders smaller than the other two by default.
