ICEM Frustration
1 Attachment(s)
Hey Guys,

I'm completely new to this whole thing and have been trying to run through some tutorials.

However it wasn't long before I became hopelessly stuck.

I cannot for the life of me figure out how to create a surface from curves. I've created the curves, and when I go to create my surface from "2-4 curves" i click the desired curves but they don't appear in the "Curves" box and the surfaces don't appear in the left hand side box.

Heres a screenshot,

So I select the 4 outside curves then click "apply" and nothing happens

I know there must be such an easy fix for this... I just cannot work it out.

Middle mouse button to accept.
The instructions at the bottom of the display window say...

"Select with the left button, then middle mouse button to accept. "

It is only after you hit that middle mouse button that the list of curves is moved over to the Data Entry Zone.

Then, you can hit apply.

That message at the bottom of the window will guide you thru most commands in ICEM CFD. I also recommend turning on the autopick mode (under settings) for higher speed interaction.
