There are a few things you can try to fix the issue of your surface not being visible in Design Modeler and meshing:

  1. Check the visibility of the surface in the tree. Make sure that the surface is not hidden or suppressed in the tree.
  2. Check the zoom level. If the surface is very small, it may be zoomed out too far to be visible. Try zooming in to see if the surface appears.
  3. Check the graphics settings. Make sure that the graphics settings are set to display all types of geometry.
  4. Try restarting Ansys. Sometimes a simple restart can fix minor glitches.

If you have tried all of the above and the surface is still not visible, you can try the following:

  1. Export the sketch to a CAD file. Export the sketch to a CAD file such as STEP or IGES. Then, import the CAD file back into Ansys. This may help to fix any errors in the sketch.
  2. Create the surface directly in meshing. Instead of creating the surface in Design Modeler, try creating it directly in meshing. To do this, go to Meshing > Volume Mesh > Create Surface. Then, select the edges of the sketch that you want to create the surface from.
  3. Use a different meshing method. If you are using the Automatic meshing method, try using the Manual meshing method instead. To do this, go to Meshing > Volume Mesh > Method and select Manual.

If you are still unable to fix the issue, you can contact Ansys support for further assistance.
