Multi-Solid Assembly Meshing

Hello,

 

I have a parasolid model, which has a hole. I've created a bushing to match the diameter of the hole.

 

For some reason when I use the tet-mesh assembly multi-sizing method, it does not detect the adjacent surfaces.

 

Is there any workaround? I'm thinking the Mesh Control > Approach on Surface > Matched Surfaces may be suitable, but it only allows me to select one master surface at a time.

 

Has anyone else had this issue? I've created a much smaller model using just solid primitive commands, and created a multi-solid part, and the assembly multi-sizing method works...but of course the real part I'm working on is much more complex.

 

Thanks,

Stressman

hello!,

The matching runs OK when both surfaces are fully coincident and have exactly the same topology (same edges) and area.

Do you know how to reset the solid and surfaces color after performing an assembly mesh? It seems FEMAP turns adjacent surfaces a darker greenish blue, and free surfaces light blue, and sets everything as transparent. This is fine for verification, but I can't seem to find a way to reset my solid and surfaces transparency and color back to the defaults.

 

 

Thanks

Hello!,

Use MODIFY > COLOR > SOLID then select ALL solid and in the color window choose RANDOM, this will assign random colors to your geometry.

 

Or when performing the solid mesh sizing do not activate the parameter ADJUST COLOR ..

Hi Stressman,

 

when you use connection regions, to make sure mesh sizing before setting connection regions. Adjacent Surface Matching doesn't work in command Mesh Size Solid to solid's surfaces with connection region in current version of Femap.
