jdwarren is on a distinguished road
Greetings. I have STLs (I can export either binary or ASCII) that I exported from Mimics which contain many elements which are extremely small and/or highly skewed. My desired end state is to volume mesh this thing and then use it for some Fluent simulations through Ansys Workbench. Can anyone recommend a way of repairing this mesh so that it will be easier to create a volume for CFD analysis? There is a large margin of error in the geometry of the mesh (there is a lot of guesswork in the segmentation process in Mimics with the low-resolution images I have), so I am much more concerned with doing this quickly than retaining all the fine geometrical features of the existing mesh. Any suggestions or advice is much appreciated. Thanks!
