stl file with internal faces
Join Date: Apr 2010
Hello fellow Foamists!
You have been most helpful so far. I really like this forum.
Let's say I have an STL file with two pipes that are modeled as cylinders, and they can be intersecting or abutting. Please see attached image.
I would like to model internal flow through the pipe. I have the outlet and inlet defined as the big circle and the small circle on the other side.
SnappyHexMesh meshes only one of the cylinders.
Is there a way to make it mesh inside the entire outer surface and ignore internal faces?
Probably too much to ask, eh ?
I currently don't have a way to remove the offending faces from the STL file.

Check the tutorial "mesh/snappyHexMesh/snappyMultiRegionHeater". But keep in mind that this means that you'll have multiple regions in you mesh!
