Fault-tolerant Meshing Workflow – small gaps

    • Levente Bicskei

      When I try to create a surface mesh with a wrapper, the mesher can not handle small gaps (compared to the size of the other solids) and the surface mesh of the two solids get connected when there should be a gap. 
      Despite the fact that the minimum element size in the local sizing is much smaller than the gap: the gap is about 40 mm, while the minimum element size set with proximity is 5 mm on both body surfaces. I also extracted the edge feature with intersection loop method. 
      How can I correct this error? 

      Thank you!

      Please give some named selection to faces in that gap. Then use local sizing for that faces. 

      Please go through help manual for more details
