Rebuilding the Mesh

The mesh represents the model. The following actions require remeshing the study before running the study:

  • Any change in geometry

  • Any change in contact conditions

  • Any change in meshing options other than automatic trials for solids if the model meshes in the first trial

  • Any change in mesh control

The mesh gets invalidated if one of the above changes is made. If you run the study, the software remeshes the model and runs the study automatically.

The following actions do not require remeshing the model:

  • Changing material properties

  • Adding, deleting, or modifying loads or restraints

  • Modifying properties of the study

  • Modifying options in the Mesh PropertyManager

You must run the study to update results.
