Hi Ted,


  The mesh appears that it is from the Autodesk Mechanical simulation product (formerly Algor).


  If this is correct, you can post the question in that forum here:


  If you want, post the model and I can see if we have any issue with the Stress Analysis mesher in Inventor.  


  It appears the coil is not 'capping' correctly in the meshed body.  I see the strange artifact at the bottom of the hole.


Best regards, -Hugh
