Re: how to view mesh
Simply load the gtm file or the initial .def file.

You can display all the boundary conditions, or an arbitrary plane and "plot lines" under the rendering options to show the mesh.

There are many ways to visualise your mesh. I often view the mesh on a cross-sectional plane. You need to create a plane & turn on the "draw line" option. For surface mesh, follow Jeff's suggestion.

Re: how to view mesh
If you are interested just on view mesh, another simple way you can take into account is to view the mesh using the .res file. You can select the boundary surface (and/or the model part you want to see), and check on the "Render" panel. At this point, you can enable "Draw lines", then click on Apply. I hope it could be usefull for you.
