Default ICEM: mesh export error
Posts: n/a
hi dudes

I finished meshing my stuff and wanted to export the mesh to cfx. the error I get is: "mesh contains ORFN elements. interace exits due to invalid mesh"

duh ... somethings wrong with my mesh, but what?

I've let the mesh-check run over it, found a few problems and deleted them.

somebody an idea?

I know this is too late but I am having the same problem. I created a 2-D mesh in ICEM and when I imported it CFX it gave the following error:

Child killed: segmentation error

Thanx and regards,
