Hi,

Can anyone give me an idea how to create a structured mesh on the dimples of golf ball? I am able to create structured mesh on a sphere but seems like the method could not apply on the golf ball.

thanks in advanced

It is some sort of slave work to create a block structured mesh with all the dimples but the topology might look like the attached picture.

Hi Vinz,

Can you briefly give me an idea how to start up with that structured grid on golf ball in a fluid domain? thanks in advanced

Dear Qkarl,

I am a GridPro user but I didn't do the mesh myself.
You should try to contact Peter Eiseman from GridPro. I guess he's the one who did the mesh and should be able to give you more details about it.
