Re: convert 3D volume to a solid (polygon mesh)

10-18-2012 06:53 AM in reply to: JDMather
hello, Solids (polygon mesh) should have 18 nodes. I need this solid for a FEM-program I do not know how to explain it! See the file: how can I convert the RED (3d volume) TO an object such as the GREEN ? when you look the properties / analyze the two objects you will see the difference of them. thx

I do not see any attached images or files?

 

All of the FEM softwares I am familiar with do their own meshing within the FEM program.

(I use Autodesk Simulation (Algor), Autodesk Inventor, SolidWorks, and Creo Mechanica for analysis of solids.)

What software are you using that doesn't do meshing of the solid for you?

sorry, here is the attachment..

 

I am using the SAP2000 for FEM and i can not import a 3d solid, which is created from primitives, like a box or a pyramid.

I can only import  "the polygon mesh", which is created with the command: 3dMESH, (which usually works with autolisp?)

 

And my aim is to convert the primitves to a polygon mesh, to avoid the programming with autolisp..

 

best regards
