linking several faces
Dear users,

Im trying to link more than two faces for meshing in GAMBIT. If I do so with just two faces, I experience no problem, but if I link three faces and mesh one of them the following happens: the first face is meshed and smoothed propperly the mesh is copied to the next face and is totally deformed (many cells with high skewness) and thus useless As I need the linked faces for periodic bcs and to apply a Cooper scheme for the volume meshing, I would be glad for any hint if there is a limiting number of linked faces or any other restriction I should concider.

Best regards,

Re: linking several faces

I don't know if it could help, but try linking the edges instead of the faces... If you have all the edges of a face linked, you should get the same mesh for the faces.

I've never linked faces, as linking the edges has always worked perfectly for me.

My best regards, Victor
