This page is devoted to frequently asked questions (FAQ) related to meshing.
On this page:
Answer: Mesh generators tend to distort elements, which either reduces solution accuracy or requires a more refined mesh to achieve certain levels of accuracy. Line constraints prevent element distortion, which minimizes the amount of meshing, and enables efficient and accurate formulation.
Answer: To resolve, try using different mesh sizes or [subdividing] the object into more regular shapes. When modeling shells, it is often helpful to avoid certain shapes, including those with:
- Corners close to zero or 180 degrees
- Large differences in the length of certain edges
Software automatically uses general meshing to mesh any areas drawn using more than four joints. To avoid meshing when no auto-meshing has been assigned, [subdivide] the object such that each region has four joints or less.
