I am looking for a way to update the normal direction of a (boundary) surface. Now when I have a surface that is built up using several smaller segments, the directions differ. This becomes problematic when I mesh plate elements and apply a surface load, since the directions are different per segment.
Ideally the solution would work similar to the reverse 'normal/orient first edge' command.
Can anyone help?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Ah, I see the option is greyed out in my model. I din't notice it.
I suppose this is only possible for surfaces (not for boundary surfaces).
Thanks for the help!
The option is greyed out because you don't have a boundary surfaces in your model.
Try to create a boundary surface and go back to the option and you will see that it is no more greyed out.
