      One of our customers has been looking into electric field at a small gap by using DGTD (2021R2). He pointed out that DGTD does not work when a STL file is inserted. He asked me to investigate the reason.

      I downloaded a STL file that fabricates a sphere from the following site. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Sphere.stl

      When the STL file was inserted into FDTD, the simulation was properly run, as described in the attached file. However, when it was inserted into DGTD, it was not possible to even apply the simulation mesh. I changed some parameters, though, I was not able to solve that.

      Once it is solved, I will let you know.
      But since the development team has a lot of preset projects, this one will take more time. You can file a feature request at ix. please refer Vote new features, and file your feature request
