Default GAMBIT Help
Posts: n/a
I have a single face with relvant node distribution. However, when i extrude this face (volume - sweep function) and cerate a mesh within this newly created volume, the node distribution is different on the upper most face. How do you maintain the same node distribution when creating a volume from an exisiting mesh. Thanks

don't create the volume from the meshed face but from a face without a mesh. Then create a mesh on one of the 2 faces and extrude it through the volume(cooper tool). The easiest way to do this is link the 2 faces for meshing before you mesh the first one - then it copies this mesh to the other one. This isn't always required for cooper though- only really for tri elements.

Always remember - create the geometry then make the mesh/do the boundary conditions.

hope this helps
