Re: Pipe_cross_section_grid

Posted by Costas at February 27. 2021

Hi,

I am working on a 3-D pipe flow of which I design the cross as in the attachment (Figure a)). However I wanted to ask you if there is any option in order to  stretch/smooth the middle region parts (square edges) where there are skewed elements and design the cross section to look like Figure b) before I extrude along path. 

Thanks,

Costas

Hi Costas

I apply 10 iterations of Laplacian smoothing ( Modification > Smoothing ) and got the mesh in the picture.

Note that if the mesh is bound to geometry the nodes on geom edges won't move. So, before smoothing, I copied the mesh made on geometry into a standalone mesh (Mesh > Copy mesh)

Hi St. Michael,

 

Thanks for the quick reply. Though, is it possible to do the smoothing in the geometry module before trying to mesh it? 

Also, what exactly is the 0D HypothesisL Length Near Vertex_3 doing?
