There are a few things you can try to fix the issue of your surface not being visible in Design Modeler and meshing:
- Check the visibility of the surface in the tree. Make sure that the surface is not hidden or suppressed in the tree.
- 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.
- Check the graphics settings. Make sure that the graphics settings are set to display all types of geometry.
- 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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
