Introduction

This command creates a mesh from a shape object.

Use

  1. Select the shape object.
  2. Choose MeshesMesh Mesh from Shape.svg Create Mesh from shape... from the top menu.
  3. A menu will ask for the mesher to use and the appropriate values for the mesher


Just selecting MeshesMesh Mesh from Shape.svg Create Mesh from shape... will give you an additional menu to choose your shape to mesh


Standard Mesher

Surface deviation: If this number is smaller the mesh becomes finer. Smallest value is 0,001.


Mefisto Mesher

Maximum edge length: If this number is smaller the mesh becomes finer. Smallest value is 0,000.

You can choose between mesh being:

  • Very coarse
  • Coarse
  • Moderate
  • Fine
  • Very fine
  • User defined


For Mesh being "user defined" you can set these values:

    • Mesh size grading : If this parameter is smaller, mesh becomes finer. A value in the range of 0.1-10.
    • Element per edge : If this parameter is larger, mesh becomes finer. A value in the range of 0.1-10.
    • Element per curvature radius : If this parameter is larger, mesh becomes finer. A value in the range of 0.1-10.


For every main option you can also choose:

  • Optimize surface : Whether optimization of surface shape will be done.
  • Second order elements:Whether second order elments will be generated.
  • Quad dominant:Whether meshes will be arranged like hexahedral.
