Hello, I have a file from the Lagamine with nodes and elements. Elements are 8 node quads. I converted the file to mesh format with Matlab. When I open it with gMSh, it says Vertex Index error.
I was wondering what could be wrong?
Thank you

Don't know the requirements for gMsh, but Matlab uses indices from 1 to n for n items, while applications based on C-language often run from 0 to n-1. This can generate indexing errors.
