Default gambit and real volume
Posts: n/a
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

ok, I have expected that you can use import format you want. Where did you draw your geometry?

goyalnn is on a distinguished road
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?
