<commblock> <author>Michael</author> <email>email@example.com</email> <inst></inst> <comment> Hello, I´m trying to do a 3d microstructure reconstruction of random media from 2d information (one slice). What I get is xyz coordinates of one phase (e.g. porous phase). So I´ve got a .txt or .xyz file like this: 0 1 1 5 8 9 22 54 20 ... Now I want to do a FE analysis via abaqus. Is there a way to use iso2mesh to create surfaces and then mesh them and export the file to abaqus? Thank you and greetings from Germany, Michael </comment> <timestamp>: Thu Feb 05 2015 12:52:33 GMT+0100</timestamp> </commblock> <commblock> <author>fm</author> <email>firstname.lastname@example.org</email> <inst></inst> <comment> Hi all, I am trying to create a volume mesh from 2 closed but intersecting surfaces (a and i). Using version 2013/01/20 (1.4.9, codename: Laba Porridge - beta) Problem: Only one domain will get meshed. The error I get: Error: Invalid PLC. Hint: Use -d switch to check it. volume mesh generation is complete Here is my workflow: 1. Remove overlapping geom. from one surface [a2]=surfboolean(i,'diff',a); 2. Merge 2 surfaces [merged] = mergemesh(i,a2); 3. Specify domain ids determine point coords. with 'surfinterior' on i and a2. 4. Meshing [node,elem,face]=surf2mesh(merged,p0,p1,keepratio,maxvol,regions); 5. Repair [merged] = meshcheckrepair(merged); Q: Why do I get the error? Are there additional steps needed, if so which one? Any help is greatly appreciated. Also, meshing the surfaces individualy is not a problem. Thanks, fm </comment> <timestamp>: Wed Mar 13 2013 16:30:16 GMT-0500 (Central Daylight Time)</timestamp> </commblock>
