[GiDlist] GiD interface in windows XP

Dear Fernando, You can try to take out and put the different bars/menus again using the Configure Toolbars window. To acces it just click on the right mouse button over some icon of some bar.

[GiDlist] Problems with the gidlist

Dear Gidders, I write this e-mail just to appologize in the name of the GiD Team, because the GiDList have had some problems last month. That is the reason because some e-mails were not answered, and you may have recieved some test mail. Best regards, ABEL _________________________________ Abel Coll...

[GiDlist] Prism elements

Dear Zdzislaw, You can generate prism elements assigning if the volume meshed is set as Semi-structured (Mesh-Semistructured). This only can be applied to topologically prismatic volumes. If you don't want to construct a geometrical volume (only like a extrusion of the triangles of the boundary ...

[GiDlist] RE: [GiDlist] RE: [GiDlist] How to generate volume

Dear Chen, You are right: it is an inconvenient to force the user to have the "plane" geometry in the z=0 plane. This is like this because it was thought for 2d geometries (only taking care on x and y coordinates). We will take it into account for next developments. Kind regards, and thank you very ...

[GiDlist] How to generate volume mesh out of surface mesh

Dear Chen, If you want to generate a volume mesh using GiD, you must be in one of these two situations: - topological closed set of surfaces. In this case, you can create the volume (Geometry-Create-Volume) and generate the mesh (Mesh-Generate). - a conformal mesh which close a volume (each edge hav...

[GiDlist] boundary layer meshing

Dear Mark, By now there is no tutorial for the boundary layer meshing. However, it is very simple to use: The only thing you have to do is select 'Mesh-Boundary layer-2D or 3D', and select the entities. For 3d, for example, first of all you have to select the volumes into which the boundary ...

[GiDlist] problem with mashing

Dear Samir, To get the line mesh and the surface mesh, you have to set Mesh-Mesh Criteria-Mesh-Lines and select the lines you want. The same happens if you want to have a volume mesh and also the mesh of its boundary surfaces. Doing this you will get both meshes, but they are conformal. If you want ...

[GiDlist] Contact element

Dear Luis, It seams that the two lines which form the ContactSurface are sharing their starting and ending nodes. Each geometrical point can only generate one mesh node. To solve this problem, you must duplicate the nodes, so as each line have its own geometrical starting and ending point. Regards, ...

[GiDlist] Hi,there is a question about the unstructured mesh

Dear Chen, The way to ensure that you are using the same Meshing properties (the ones which appear in the Preferences-Meshing window) that the model had previously is to set Utilities-Status-SetMeshOptions. This function load the meshing properties saved with the model. Regards, ABEL _______________...

[GiDlist] How to generate a grid without adding new nodes?

Dear Jonas, Depending on the shape of the surface to be meshed, some node is added or not, when a unstructured mesher is used. In your case, you have a four-sided surface, so you can generate a structured mesh on it. If you set a structured the surface, you assign "Triangle" as its element type, and...
