The problem is that Gambit is unable to mesh volumes with a missing part, like in this case, so you need to divide the volume at least in two parts. Hope it will help

 February 13, 2008, 10:53 Re: Need some help with mashing a cylinder #4 Laura Leitch Guest   Posts: n/a Thank you very much for your kind help. Im trying to do my final year project on gambit which is related to industrial air and vapour flow. Technically i have to create a cylinder and put a sphere at the middle of the cylinder and eventually generate a mash without being being able to generate the mash of the sphere. its been over 2 weeks im stuck at this point. I did most of the tutorials but still cant find anything similar to my problem. Just wondering if u would be kind enough to tell me brifly, how to divide a volume or may be few links to tutorials or documentation that might help. thank you very much in advance. Laura

The airfoil tutorial shows how you can subtract a face from another one, and the procedure for volumes is the same. You can also use axisymetric flow, it's much more simple to mesh and to solve.
