importing cylinder doesn't work & meshing trouble
I'm new to STAR-CCM+. The place where I work on it either has faulty licenses, or something, because I can't access the tutorials. Thus, I went straight to the forums.
I am trying to create a cylinder around an airfoil. My mentor showed me that this was possible by expanding "Representations" and right clicking "Import", then selecting the cylindrical region.
However, every time I expand the "Representations" option, there is nothing there that says "import", just "geometry". How do I get the import option there?
I got it only once, when I imported a cylinder from SolidWorks, and then I could see the import option there, but it got too confusing and cluttered, and besides, my mentor had that option without importing something else from SolidWorks, just a .igs airfoil exported from there.
Hope this makes sense.
The other issue is that after I have set all of my options (mesh continua, etc.) and wish to mesh my airfoil, I click mesh and nothing happens. I do "show mesh", but it only shows me the ugly and useless mesh that shows up normally if you do that. Any suggestions there?
Help would be appreciated!
-The "import" option only shows up when you use import regions mode, if you use import parts, you get "geometry"
-To see the created mesh, you can right click on the representation window and choose "apply representation -> volume mesh"
