export/import groups to UNV in 3.2?
export/import groups to UNV in 3.2?Posted by José Santos at August 19. 2006Hello I've read in this forum that the ability to export/import groups to UNV would be included in Salome 3.2. However, I am not able to use this new feature. Is it really included? It would be a fine addiction for allowing the conversion to OpenFOAM mesh format. Regards José Santos
Re: export/import groups to UNV in 3.2?Posted by Igor Nazarov at August 21. 2006Hi,
Salome 3.2.1 allows export/import any group (on nodes, on edges, on faces and on volumes) to/from UNV
You can try it by the following way :
1) create new document
2) import SMESH_mechanic
3) load Mesh module, display created mesh
4) Object Browser selection (/Mesh/Mesh_mechanic) popup - Create Group
5) set "Face" as "Elements Type"
6) set "faces" as "Name"
7) select a several faces of the displayed mesh via mouse
8) "Create Group": Add, Ok
9) Object Browser selection (/Mesh/Mesh_mechanic) popup - Export to UNV file (save mesh)
10) Menu File - Import - UNV file
11) import just saved UNV file and check the restored group
Remarks: UNV format does not support polygonal elements. So it is not possible to export to UNV format group with such element type.
Re: export/import groups to UNV in 3.2?Posted by John Borchardt at February 17. 2007Hi I am trying to export just the faces/triangles of a mesh to UNV format from Salome 3.2.2. I attempted to follow the instructions with regard to creating a mesh group posted previously in this forum. I believe I have created a group with just the faces OK. (When I show element numbers with only the group displayed, the numbers for the linear elements are gone.) However, when I popup on the mesh to export as UNV, it still exports both the triangle elements and the line elements. (When I re-import the UNV file, elements for both lines and triangles are shown, however, there is now a face group that excludes the line elements.) The option to export as UNV is not available when I popup on just the group. When I try to export from the File menu, the software does nothing (does not even issue an error). Any suggestions short of editing my UNV file by hand?
