Multiple Solid meshing

Thank to symmetry, we work only with 1/8 of assembly Split plate surface by the circle of cylinder: Create two 2D meshes Create 3D mesh of cylinder by method « drag elem » Create 3D mesh of plate by dragging 2 2D components Make full mesh by using symmetrical operations: Equivalent of nodes: And the final mesh:

Coincident hex mesh

Splitting surfaces Make 2D meshes on splitted interface For 1st solid, create 3D mesh by drag For 1st solid, use 3D => drag => drag elems The mesh of 1st solid For 2nd solid, apply the same method, but for both « 2D_1 » & « 2D_2 » The 2nd mesh And finally the assembly with coincident mesh on…
