[Volume mesh generation stuck]

    • Fadi Al

      Having trouble loading an existing project where I was given the Workbench files with the _files folder and whenever I attempt to initialize generating the volume mesh, the progress gets stuck at 30% even with different min/max cell sizes. This is for Ansys Fluent R1 2023 and I am unsure if this is due to a hardware issue or not since the geometry contains millions of cells. My laptop has 6 cores - 12 threads @ 2.6 - 4.5 GHz and 16 GB RAM so I am wondering if upgrading to 64 GB of RAM would help or not. Thank you for the help.

      Here are platform recommendations

      With 16GB you can generate around 40 to 45 M tet cells depending on the geometry complexity and sizing used.
