 March 21, 2006, 21:17 How to mesh a circle by Gambit? #1 Zhengcai Ye Guest   Posts: n/a Hi, I found a strange thing when I tried to mesh a circle by Gambit. As I thought, the circle is a regular shape and it should be easy to be meshed by Quad-Map scheme. The real situation is that I could not mesh the circle by Quad-Map scheme perhaps because elements near the center of the circle are not quadrilateral. I also tried to mesh the circle by Wedge-Primitive scheme by means of drawing a virtual line. It failed because Gambit told me they (or it ) are the same edge. Is there any good method to mesh a circle by Gambit? Thanks for your help!
