Exercise 3: Complex Geometry meshed with hexahedrons, quality controls
This sample is known to work on the latest SALOME release.
The compatibility with previous versions of SALOME is not guaranteed, though the sample can work on old versions also.
3D Geometry, Partition, Hexahedral mesh, mesh display, quality controls.
This tutorial is a part of the EDF internal training course; it does not describe a real use case.
Creation of reference points: (menu New Entity/Basic/Point).
Creation of reference vectors: (menu New Entity/Basic/Vector).
Creation of wire in the sketcher: (menu New Entity/Basic/2D Sketch).
Creation of a face for meshing: (menu New Entity/Build/Face).
Creation of a face by revolution: (menu New Entity/Generation/Revolution).
Display the object in Shading mode.
Creation of a fillet: (menu Operation/Fillet3D).
Display Only and use Shading mode on Fillet_1.
Creation of a face by extrusion: (menu New Entity/Generation/Extrusion).
Creation of the cutting planes: (menu New Entity/Basic/Plane).
Partition of the face to be meshed: (menu Operation/Partition)
Display Only Partition_1.
Modify properties of the object (Color, transparency, isos…).
Calculate properties (Volume, Surface, mass center, bounding box …).
Launch SMESH module.
Creation of Mesh_1 : (menu Mesh/Create Mesh)
Use the clipping plane.
Display the number of nodes and elements…
Change the Display Mode (Shading, Nodes, Wireframe, Shrink…).
Display volumes, faces, nodes…
Play with transparency.
