Vivek.oswal is on a distinguished road
Hello all,

I am trying to mesh my geometry from design modular in workbench itself.
Most of the parts in my geometry are created as a thin surface with thickness =0. (as there it happens the best way to create my geometry)
So the mesh created is a Surface Mesh.
Now fluent doesn't read this mesh giving an error "cannot read surface mesh"

Can someone please help me through this?

how do we create a volume mesh out of this surface mesh?
Thank you.
