phantom node causes merge to fail

Postby kstn » Tue Oct 29, 2019 11:03 am


When there is phantom node (node does not belong to any element) in one partition, GiD does not read the results in that partition and throw an error. Is that default GiD behaviour or there is a way to get pass it?

I attached the GiD files for reproducing the issue (note that node 7 is the phantom node). GiD version is 12.0.9.

it seems an error or limitation of version 12.
With current GiD 14 you can read your multiple meshes+results in postprocess with Files->Merge...
(could use merge because your nodes and elements that have unique unrepeated id)
It doesn't raise any error, but the isolated node is not showed in the final model,
I think that is ignored if do not belong to any element (to any set)

Return to “Postprocess”
