Meshing Parameters

The mesh is generated by right clicking the Mesh icon in the Simulation study tree and selecting Create Mesh. The generated mesh depends on the following factors:

  • Created geometry for meshing.
  • Active mesh options for the study.
  • Mesh control specifications
  • Connections options for contact
  • Global element size and tolerance
It is recommended that you verify all these factors before meshing. Any change in these factors requires remeshing. To modify mesh options for a study, right-click the Mesh icon, select Create Mesh, and expand Advanced. Right-click the Mesh icon and select Details to view how an existing mesh was generated.
