Re: Difficulties implementing a problemtype using the customLib

You said: The solver requires element’s connectivities numbered sequentially from 1 to 101 I don't know what this mean. Is this numeration possible in a generic mesh (unstructured triangles+tetrahedra, etc) ? In any case: If do you need in the calculation file a very specific sorting of the elements...

Re: cmas2d.gid question

Maybe I don't understand well your question. In the cmas2d.gid (classic problemtype) as user you must assign a material to each geometry surface. (each entity can have 1 and only 1 material) Data->Materials... Assign->Surfaces when generating the mesh all elements of each surface will inherit the ma...

Re: Count surfaces with condition

The GiD Tcl command GiD_Info conditions allow to get this information
e.g.
set num_entities [GiD_Info conditions $condition_name geometry -count]

See the "GiD customization manual"

Re: tutorial videos

There are not official video-tutorials to learn GiD, only some examples in our channel
https://www.youtube.com/c/gidhome
(maybe the access to youtube is forbidden connecting from China, I don't know)

Re: tutorial videos

Unfortunatelly there are not official video-tutorials to learn GiD
In any case, you can search in youtube for some tutorials of problemtypes using GiD

Re: Refining quadrilateral and hexahedral element meshes

Instead of manually you can do it at Tcl scripting level

e.g. can ask the current mesh for example with
GiD_Info Mesh

and can create new nodes and elements with the command
GiD_Mesh create|delete|edit|get|list

see GiD help on Customization->Tcl/Tk extension

Re: Cannot import an example tcl file...

Hi, The 'example.tcl' file is not a GiD file, but an input file of the OpenSees solver The process followed to create this file was: 1- create or import the geometry in Gid 2- load in GiD some GiD-OpenSees problemtype (there exists more than one), 3- Assign graphically to the geometry the boundary c...

Re: Refining quadrilateral and hexahedral element meshes

Sorry, GiD cannot do this kind of hexahedra refinements, with pattern of edge subdivisions 1:3
The octtree mesher is doing internally a similar subdivision with pattern 1:2, but in any case it is an internal feature not accessible at user level.
