meshing problem with different mesh size?

Postby ShawHale » Thu Mar 04, 2021 3:17 pm


Recently I imported a complicated 3D model from other 3D-design software with extension .SLDASM (SolidWorks Assembly File) into GID, and tried to make its surface conformal and mesh it (I only need surface mesh). I think I already made it conformal for that when I check View -> Higher entities -> lines all lines are interior lines. The problem is with one component surface of this model, so I extract this component surface and save it in a single Gid file. I can mesh it successfully with setting mesh size 0.4 or larger than this value, but errors will be reported if I try to mesh it with setting mesh size smaller than 0.3. The error is : Couldn't mesh the surface. I don't know why this happens, I upload the file in .rar format, please check it and help to fix it.

Thank you very much!

The related .rar file is not attached. Try again
(Maybe this forum allow only .zip attachments)

Probably your model has big gaps or self-intersections, and meshing with small size cannot 'jump' some defect.
