Hello everyone,

I use ANSA for cleaning the geometry and was told to mesh it with STL (Auto-STL) for later use with Star-CCM+.
Cleaning worked really fine but when export the STL i have problems regarding fineness and the later meshing in CCM+.
It gets much better when I i decrease the MaxLength. But then my whole model has too many faces.
How can I mesh (STL) only specific parts with for example max length 0.07 and other parts with 0.5.
I tried it but after meshing the visible parts always one part of the mesh was missing.
Isnt there a list where I can enter the max length for each pid?

yes its possible. you can assign diff size for diff PIDs.

Thanks for the reply. Can you tell me where exactly i can assign the diff size for PIDs (for STL meshing)?

In ANSA 16 you simply select the PIDs in auto-stl, in earlier versions you must freeze all your mesh except the patch you want to remesh. (Best is to freeze all and then unfreeze the parts you are working on)

Thank you very much. That really helped.
