Meshing process stuck for more than 5 hours.

Hello everyone.

Could you tell me, please? Why a meshing process stuck?

I have 5% for already 5 hours. And usually a model like this meshes for 10 min.

    I expect there is something wrong with the geometry.

    Then why there is no errors? Also, i have checked it by SpaceClaim and it showed no errors.

    If you are using student version make sure that your node count does not exceed the allowed node count.

    Structural Physics: 128K nodes/elements

    Fluid physics: 512K cells/nodes

    Electromagnetics: N/A

    This could be due to geometry problem or due to wrong mesh sizing. Can you please check following? 

    1. Please check geometry in SpaceClaim. Select geometry in structure tree --> Use right click --> Select Check Geometry. The geometry should be error free to proceed. If geometry has any errors, please modify/recreate geometry at those places.
    2. If geometry is error free, then please select appropriate Physics Preference in meshing. 
    3. Please give body/face/edge sizing so that mesh has sufficient mesh density and resolve important features. 
    4. For the error, please use right click on the error and click on 'problematic geometry'. This will highlight geometry which is failing to mesh. You will need to modify geometry at this location or change mesh sizing. 
    5. If your meshing has special controls like periodicity, please check if those are correctly defined.

    I use commercial version. All setting by default. As i said above there is not any errors have checked by SpaceClaim. Also, The mechanical didn't show any errors, just stuck during meshing.

    I will try to set different element sizes. Hope it will help.
