Default How can i use an existing surface mesh?
Posts: n/a
Hi, i created a surface mesh over a complex wing in Gambit. As Gambit has problems to generate a volume, i want to import the surface mesh into ICEM. Is it possible to use the already existing surface mesh (I can import the mesh as *.msh) in ICEM and "just" build a volume around it?

Thanks for your reply.

Yes. Assuming you also import or create the exterior geometry (so you have a volume to fill), there is an option in the volume meshing to start from geometry, mesh or a combination of the two.

...or you could just build the whole mesh in ICEM CFD, or Workbench, ...
