es-ice/Tutorial problem doubt
when i am doing tutorial problem for es-ice using trimming method the following error occurs before creating 2-D template:

Error: The cells between valve 1(22) and valve 2(18) must agree.

Before storing section 1 and section 2 in create Template panel.

Is this due to trimming splines? or adjusting right triangle for inlet valve(section1)?

when creating the 2d template the 2 sides of section 1 and 2 (first and second mathematical quadrant) have to have the same amount of cells. So increase the number of cells in section 2 by 6.

sorry 4 of course.
I though it said 24.

Thanks chili for your reply,
Yesterday i adjusted the cells for respective valve(section) so that match occurs properly.

But during trimming process,
following error found

Error:Failed to cut the template,
could not close the surface because the edge of valve face was not found

I think the edges of valves at junction should align properly then only trimming will occur.
