How to pattern a mesh in ansys meshing
Dear CFD-online community,
I have a "part", where a lot of the geometry repeats. So i made a pattern in the Designmodeler. My question is, if it is possible to do such a similar operation for the mesh later in Ansys meshing. And if yes, so how. Because to set the conditions at every volume (body) every time again is very time consuming and also to mark every entity for the condition. Also I expect, that the approach to copy a part of the mesh would be faster than, generate it multiple times again.
I searched the users guide and also the forum here, so I hope not to overlooked some thread. Thanks for Your help in forward.:)

In ansys 14.5 there is a thing called "object generator" where you can set the same mesh parameters for similair bodies. But this will still result in you meshing all of them and not copying the mesh.

Perhaps you want to import the meshes several times and transforming them in you preprocessor instead?

The object generator approach, at least saves also a lot of my work time and my clicking hands :). And decrease the possibility of a wrong click. Thanks
