Re: Unable to save files

Hello,

could you please indicate the exact version of GiD are you using? (12.x.y?). You can find this information in the Help->About menu

Re: Volume can't be semi-structured.

Hello,
your geometry seams to be prismatic, but you may have some duplicated entity, or maybe some of the points you have created is not splitting the line.
You can check the topology of the entities using View->HigherEntities.
If you want, you can attach the model, so I can check it.

Re: Avoiding Subdivision of the edges when meshing a surface

Hello, there is one restriction with the unstructured quadrilateral mesher in GiD: the sum of the line elements (of the mesh) enclosing a surface, must be even. This may be the reason why GiD is adding an aditional node in that line. To avoid this, you should ensure the number of lines contour of th...

Re: Meshing Cylinder

Hello, you can generate a structured mesh of hexahedra (or tetrahedra) if the volume has 6 contour surfaces, so it can be topologically 'identified' with a cube. You also have the option to use center structured meshes in the tops of the cylinder (Mesh->Structured->Surfaces->Center structured), and ...

Re: German Translation

You are right. The german translation is not complete and reviewed. Thanks for notifying this correction. We will include it in further versions.

Re: License for Mac OS X

Hello, the password is valid for all 12.x versions (both official and developers). You can get the free evaluation password (full cappabilities of GiD) from the website, and it lasts one month. Each computer can get up to three evaluation passwords, so there should be no problem for your students to...

Re: prism+tets

Hello,

maybe another option you have is to use the boundary layer mesh (see reference manual). This allows you to define some layers of elements with a given size normal to the surface, avoiding the need to edit the geometry. The thing is that in that case only tetrahedra are generated (not prisms).

Re: License for Mac OS X

Hello, you are right: there is only the developer version available for Mac OS. The official versions are more stable, and they are the result of just fixing bugs from the first official version (the 12.0 was published on July 2014). The developer versions include new developments, and may be not so...

Re: prism+tets

Hello,

the prism elements can only be obtained from a topologically prismatic volume. Can you send me the model in order to allow me to check whether the geometry fits with this requirements or not?

Re: Triangulate Surface Mesh to GiD volumetric Mesh

Hello,
I don't understand clearly your question. What do you mean with 'convert triangular surface meshes into gid volumetric meshes'? Are you trying to generate tetrahedra meshes of volumes, which contour surfaces are triangles? Or do you want to create prismatic elements from triangular ones?
