 June 21, 2001, 17:11 FIDAP FI-GEN Question #1 Jason Jordan Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links For all you FI-GEN users out there: I am trying to mesh a object that is composed of three individual mesh solids. If you can imagine an equilateral triangle and breaking it down into three equilateral triangles with a common center point. Each triangle has a face that is touching the other triangles. I have assigned A mesh face to the 2 sides of the traingle touching the other two triangles. When I attempt to mesh the solid, I can mesh 2 of the 3 triangles but the other one cannot be meshed. I keep getting the error message: This element face is currently owned by a mesh face. Does anyone know what is wrong here? --Thanks --Jason
