Trying to mesh an FSAE wing model but getting errors

    • 22503862

      Hello, I'm trying to mesh my wing model but some errors are coming up that I've never had before. I noticed in the console that I get 'Front edge' errors as follows:


      ' Duplicate front Edge at (553.686920 85.545065 419.028367)

          Front could not be closed at e95 (424.988348 1.639983 200.970404)

          Duplicate front Edge at (605.098170 166.825247 499.000000)

          Duplicate front Edge at (605.827279 168.350039 212.245619)

          tessellating 48 faces done in 340.165 [s]

          removing named collections of entities ...

          removing named collections of entities stopped, no named collections selected. '


      I don't understand what these mean, my geometry is quite simple and I don't understand why there would be these errors. Once the meshing fails it spits out this error:

      Again this doesn't make sense, my named selections are well defined and should be working. What could be the issue?

      I recommend checking out Ansys innovative course to obtain more information on the mesh: Mesh Generation Using Ansys Fluent Meshing - Lesson 2 - ANSYS Innovation Courses

      I assume it is Fluent Meshing. 

      Please check geometry in SpaceClaim. 
      Select geometry in structure tree --> Use right click --> Select Check Geometry. (Or Tools - Fault Detection in DM)
      The geometry should be error free to proceed. 
      If geometry has any errors, please modify/recreate geometry at those places. 

      Make sure you are using correct sizing at different locations like leading edge or trailing edge. 


      Please go through help manual for more details
