Hi all,

I'm very new to DesignModeler and I encountered a problem shown in the attached picture. I export the CAD file as *.sat file, then import this 2D geometry to DesignModeler. When I select edges, I found some circles are complete while some others are incomplete, only a small part of the circle. I'm pretty sure these circles are same in CAD and have no idea why this strange edge appears. If I process to mesh, these edges remain incomplete. Since I need to assign different boundary condition to different circles, I'm also worried that the boundary condition could be incomplete.


Anyone have encountered this problems before? Thanks in advance!

Hi,
suggestions:
1. try to delete the edge in space claim
2. try use other cad file format
3. it is better to design this simple 2D model in space claim itself

Thanks...
