gambit and real volume
Hi, I'm a problem with a file that I have imported in Gambit. It is a .stl file and Gambit consider it as a NON-REAL VOLUME. But I want to convert it in a REAL volume, because I want to intersect this geometry with a sphere that I create directly in Gambit. My question is: how convert this geometry in a real vomlume? I have tryed, but an error occurred: the volume have to be MAPPED MESHED. But I can't create a mapped mesh for this geometry. Please, help me. Thank you very much. Simo

Re: gambit and real volume
Hi, but my file is a .dbs (or .msh file, or .stl)... I can't open with acis or iegs, I suppose..

Re: gambit and real volume
ok, I have expected that you can use import format you want. Where did you draw your geometry?

I have created a hospital room geometry whcihis divided into three volumes. Is it possible to mesh non-real volumes without converting into real ones?

Yes you can mesh non-real volumes
