Default question from ICEM beginner
Posts: n/a

I used Gambit before. For a 2D problem in gambit, I usually created several surface and then mesh them one by one. Right now, I have to switch to ICEM. I don't even know what is the basic procedure to mesh in ICEM. For example, if a step file is imported into ICEM, there are only points and curves. Should I create surface first as what I have done in Gambit? then mesh the surface? My current task is urgent. Please help. Thanks in advance.

You can create block or surface. My suggestion is following the tutorials. The first tutorial is to build a typical 2D grid. It is clearly demonstrated.
