Every time I try to mesh a part, no matter the geometry, I get a very general mesh failed error. I have followed the procedures listed in the following thread:
But have had no success. I have included a screen shot of the failure with a very simple test extrusion.
Has anyone else had this error? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Attach the ipt file here.
I have attached the part file, but this part is just a simplified test part. I have tried this part file on a different computer and it has meshed successfully.
I have exact the same problem.
now I have a 64 bit workstation windows 7 (HP Z600)
Did the same on my old computer 64 bit workstation windows 7 (HP Z200) and I had no problems.
Hi rschwartz and DWEN,
I see you've already tried the NTFS file name workaround in the other thread with NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation = 0
A similar issue was reported where a different program (that also uses the same 3rd party volume mesher as Inventor) conflicted with Inventor being able to mesh.
Could you view your system environment variables to see if you have "GHS3D_SOC016" set / existing ?
You can access the environment variables list list via: Windows Start menu => type environment variables => Edit the System Environment variables => System properties dialog => Advanced tab => Environment Variables... => System variables
I'm realy sorry,
The windows start menu is at bottom left, if I type environment variables, oneley some files show up that have noting to do with it.
Do I have to look at an other place?
You can access the environment variables list list via: Windows Start menu => type environment variables ??????????=> Edit the System Environment variables => System properties dialog => Advanced tab => Environment Variables... => System variables
I found something that looks like the systeem veriables. Look in the file I send.
There is no such GHS3D_SOC016.
Do I looked at the right place?
Yes, you are looking in the correct place (the System environment variables list).
Would it be possible to export the list of your environment variables? There may be another conflict that Development can spot if we share the list with them.
In the Windows Start menu => type "CMD" to invoke to the command prompt window. Then type in the following to generate a list of the set environment variables (without the quotes ""):
Look in the C:\Temp directory for the text file and post it up here or you can email it to me directly at hughDOThendersonATautodeskDOTcom
We apologize for the inconvenience this is causing.
Best regards, -Hugh
