Default quasi 2D slice in proam
Posts: n/a
HI Experts!

Is there a way to create a 2d slice (one cell thick) in proam? because I am afraid that it will start growing mesh inside and away from the perpendicular shells (along z) it can produce more than desired 1 cell... I have already the surfaces describing my slice and my plan is:

1.create the mesh with proam (trimmed) this way I will obtain nicely meshed front face. 2.remove everything apart of this front face 3.extrude the front face.

Isn't it a bit 'oversophisticated'??? I am afraid that I must have missed something in the manual...

ps. does anyone have a template mesh for an octagonal crossection?

No need to use pro-am - use command VCEX (extrude shells) in pro-STAR, or the STAR GUIde under Create 2D Grids to extrude shells just one fluid cell thick in say Z direction.

(You might use pro-am to smooth or remesh the surface say to convert triangles to quads etc first).

Not sure what you mean by octagonal template - if you mean just a simple octagon shape, try the PATCH command to create this in one of two patches then VMERGE then VCEX as above.
