Default Surface orientation in ICEM5..Please help.
Posts: n/a
Hi all,

I recently create a tetra mesh with prism elements. When I check the mesh, it said the surface orientation is not okay but when I click on the "Fix", it should me a strange function and said it can't be fixed. A tsl script error pops up later. What can I do to fix this problem? If not solved this error, will that affect the simulation in CFX5.7?

Thank you for your advice. Really don't know what to do right now.... From,Pete

This error can affect simulation sometimes, especially when you have internal walls (we had such problems). To fix it you need switch on such families and use ReOrient Mesh->Reorient Consistent (in terms of new gui) for surface elements.
