Default Inverted elements in gambit

Hi everyone,

When i mesh volume with a structured mesh, gambit tells me ALL my volume cells are skewed AND inverted. The point is that i have a logical cube, and i have succeed to mesh other logical cubes on the same project...

Isn't it a matter of reference, orientation of the faces or something like that ? And how to avoid this error ?

Thanks in advance...

would really need to see the mesh to diagnose fully.

You should open one of your previous successful case files, go to run journal, click current journal and load(or something like that) and you can read all the things you did in creating the geometry. Compare this with your current journal and see what you did differently.

If this doesn't help then try making the model again following your successful journal file, or just modifying a previous geometry. Hope this helps.
