When I try to couple two meshes, the output window prints:

Warning - cell 330596 is left-handed. It will not be used to create couples.
.
.
.

What left-handed means? Any solution?

Thanks,
Wei

wei,

It means the cell is either of poor quality or it was generated backwards.

Type "cset news clist 330596$zoom off$cplot" and check if the cell is poorly shaped. If it looks like a good cell then you can make it right handed with "cflip 330596". If it looks like a bad cell then just delete it.
