Meshing a geometry with two solids (one solid inside the other)

Posted by Thodoris at January 07. 2017

Happy new year to everyone,
I am trying to do a simulation for corrotating vortices in OPenfoam.I have made my geometry in Inventor Autocad and i import the stp file in salome.The geometry is a solid box which has inside the wings.Can someone tell me the steps which i have to follow in order to mesh it because when i mesh it i have some error in openfoam checkmesh such as unused points and nonorthogonal points.Another question i want to make is why it tells me that 1d global algorithm is missing when i use netgen 1-2-3d ?.
Thank you very much in advan

Hi Thodoris

You observe all these effects because your geometry contains not only a solid but some other shapes, hanging vertices for example etc. To extract the solid to be meshed, use New Entity > Explode, Sub-shape type = Solid.
