I want to generate a mesh where the hexahedral section(See figure) has a higher aspect ratio. In 2D, this can be done by applying edge sizing and specifying the number of divisions (Keeping a small number of divisions in the horizontal direction and a large number in the vertical direction). But how to do the same in 3D? The figure is the front view of the 3D geometry involved.June 8, 2021 at 7:11 pmpeteroznewmanSubscriberIn SpaceClaim, I recommend you use Split Body and select the face at the top of the cutout, Spilt Body again at the face on the left of the cutout and Split Body again on the right face of the cutout. Now the volume that had the hex mesh is divided up into 5 pieces, and each piece is a six sided box. If you assign a Mesh Method called Sweep, you can control the Z dimension of the elements separately from the X and Y dimension.
I assume there are two solid bodies at the bottom that are separate from the solid at the top. If you go to the Workbench tab in SpaceClaim and click the Share button, that will ensure all the bodies have nodes that are congruent. In the Mesh program, mesh the bodies with the hex elements first, then mesh the two lower bodies last. Pyramid elements will transition to the tet elements below.
June 10, 2021 at 4:49 pmRRaghavendraSubscriberHello This was drawn in designmodeler and the image shown is from ANSYS Meshing. The geometry(sorry for not mentioning this earlier) consists of 2 boxes, one on the other, with a narrow box subtracted in between the 2 boxes (that is the vacant space in the image). Can the same procedure that you just mentioned, be done in designmodeler?
