Default ICEM Prism mesh assertion?
Posts: n/a
Hi all! Has anyone here tried to do prisms in ICEM CFD 10.0.1 with a surface that has mixed quads and triangles? It seems no matter what I do (tried different hybrid mesh types, blocking, running prisms before/after volumes) I get a crash in the prism mesher after Initializing Heights:

Assertion failed: fc->ops[2] == v3, file compute_marching_dir.C, line 237

I've been through my geometry with a fine tooth comb, all curves and surfaces match perfectly, all normals are OK, etc. As long as I stay tri only I can run the prisms fine, but not with quads

Have you tried put prisms on quads and triangles separately and merge them together?

Interesting suggestion ;-). But how? I go "Select Parts for Prism Layer". If a part has a mixed quad/tri surface mesh, I don't see where I can select only one element type?
