Default Having problem in creating a volume mech in GAMBIT
Posts: n/a
I am trying to mesh a volume. The volume is basically a 6 sided brick, with one of face that I put face mesh are made up of several faces while the opposite face is made up with only one face.

For that, I am trying to use a Cooper scheme to imprint similar face mesh to the other side, and it seems that portion is successful.

However, as with other 4 faces that covers the rest of the volume are giving me the problem. While 3 of 4 are meshed with right orientation to their corresponding faces, one on the back is giving me a face mesh all the way twisted.

You may imagine it as one twisting a piece of paper while holding both ends. As the result, the middle section of the meshed face is actually protruding out of the constructed face.

I tried to only mesh the problematic face, and got the same problem.

Any thought how to fix this problem?

if you delete your mesh and then switch the visibilty on "shaded", is this twisted problem still visble? if yes, then it isn't a mesh problem, but a construction problem.
