I cleaned up a midsurface which had details like fastener holes and during clean up process, I requested Femap to insert a surface mesh point. Sure enough, the clean up process outcome was as expected.
However, during meshing, Femap is not considering existing surface mesh points while generating grid. I even checked "Use internal points as mesh location" option in Meshing tool box. What am I doing wrong?
A couple of images to support the above.
I have used this feature successfully in the past. I can't remember why it is not working now!
Would appreciate some help.
The "Use Internal Points as Mesh Pointss" is for the case where the Parasolid surfaces have vertices burned in from an external source, i.e. from a CAD system. There is no way to create internal Parasolid vertices in FEMAP.
What you are looking for is Mesh Hard Points, use Mesh - Mesh Control - Mesh Points on Surface and hook your FEMAP points to the surface as Mesh Points.
