Default Grid problems
Posts: n/a

In meshing my GAMBIT model I have encountered the follwing message:

Impossible edge mesh/face scheme combination. Turn mesh_flags_incremental_display default on.

I don't know how to turn this on, and the manual is not much help. Does anyone out there know the answer ?

First of all, this message is part of a number (3) of possible causes of failure. Usually when I get this error message I have a problem with my vertex types: for example, I want to create a mapped mesh on a face, but the vertex types are screwed up (you need 4 vertices called 'E' at logical locations to create a mapped mesh).

Check your vertex types by selecting the face, and see if they match with what you really want to do. If there is a problem, you can change the vertex to the appropriate type in the 'Set face vertex type' panel (second from the right).
