Mesh Controls in SOLIDWORKS: Not just for Faces and Edges

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

When it comes to mesh controls, people often ask if they can be applied to an entire part instead of to edges, faces and vertices. The answer is of course “Yes”, but the method is slightly different than it is for edges, faces, and vertices. Outside of the mesh failure diagnostic window, there are two workflows/methods for applying mesh controls to parts and one of them is a little less obvious than the other. Let’s dive in and start with […]

SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation Meshing – Global Manual Settings: Part 2

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

This blog continues the quest to understand the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) mesh settings in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation that I initiated in my first blog. The focus there was on the global automatic settings. I followed that with Part 1 of global manual settings. Here, I continue to describe other manual settings, specifically the Small Solid Feature and Curvature controls. As stated previously, the goal is to create an accurate mesh without an excessive cell count that will allow an […]
