Dear Abel

I am using version 7.2
Prisma are listed under the Meshing-ElemType menu, so I figure there must be some functionality for them.

Cheers
Tim

Dear Gidlist

I am trying to mesh two volumes; one that is discretised using structured prisma; and one that is discretised using unstructured tetrahedral. These two volumes should be conforming

Two standard error messages within Gid are

1. "Non-structured volumes can only be tetrahedra or only points".

2. "Structured volumes can only be hexahedra"

How exactly can I use Prisma then? All my surfaces are Nurbs.

Apologies if this is a naive question.

Many thanks in advance
Tim Kendon

Hi, Tim,

As you said, it is possible to select Prism as element type, but it had only
sense for contact volumes in version 7.2.
In lasts beta versions it has been added the option of meshing standard
volumes with prisms as element type (only prismatic volumes).
You can download the last GiD beta version from the web page
(www.gidhome.com).

Regards

Abel Coll
