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 […]

Last month, I wrote about Mesh Control and described a process using the Simulation Advisor to fix mesh errors.  If you prefer to operate without the proverbial ‘phone-a-friend’ option, you can always turn the Simulation Advisor off by un-checking the box in your Simulation Options, as shown.  When you uncheck this box, you still have the option of accessing the Simulation Advisor from the Command Manager by selecting the appropriate Advisor in the pull-down menu. When an assembly failed to […]
