Default Can GAMBIT edit element or nodes ?
Posts: n/a
I am a beginner looking for a meshing tool for CFD (FLUENT, in particular). GAMBIT is recommended by many friends of mine. But can GAMBIT manually edit elements or nodes ? My work will involve a complex geometry. I expect difficulty in meshing, which I may have to fix it manually. If GAMBIT cannot do it, what tool should I look for?

Thank you very much.

what is a "complex geometry"? For really complex geometry use a third party tool for surface meshing and T-Grid for volume meshing.

Gambit can't edit elements & nodes but Tgrid has the capabilitiy to do so. you may use Tgrid as secondary meshing tool.
