GiD_Info MeshQuality

This command returns a list of numbers. These numbers are the Y relative values of the graph shown in the option Meshing -> Mesh quality (see MESH>Mesh Quality from Reference Manual) and two additional real numbers with the minimum and maximum limits.

This command has the following arguments:

  • MinAngle / MaxAngle / ElemSize / ElemMinEdge / ElemMaxEdge / ElemShapeQuality / ElemMinJacobian / Radius: quality criterion.
  • Line / Triangle / Tetrahedra / Quadrilateral / Hexahedra / Prism / Pyramid / Point / Sphere / Circle: type of element.
  • <min_value>: e.g. minimum number of degrees accepted.
  • <max_value>: e.g. maximum number of degrees accepted.

if min_value and max_value are set to 0 then limits will be automatically set to the minimum and maximum of the mesh

  • <num_divisions>: number of divisions.

Example:

in: GiD_Info MeshQuality MinAngle Triangle 20 60 4

out: "13 34 23 0 20.0 60.0"
