Structural Model Creation: Geometry and Meshing

Provides an in-depth look at cleaning/repairing geometry for the purpose of generating high quality meshes and offers a comprehensive discussion on meshing techniques

Course Objective

This course provides an in-depth look at cleaning/repairing geometry for the purpose of generating high quality meshes. It also offers a comprehensive discussion on meshing techniques. The focus is on techniques relevant to simulation.

The course covers the following topics:

  • Checking and Repairing Geometry
  • Defeaturing Geometry
  • Idealizing Geometry
  • Surface Meshing
  • Solid Meshing
  • Mesh Transformations
  • Importing and Editing Meshes
  • Mesh Checking and Visualization

The course is divided into lectures and workshops. 
The course's workshops are integral to the training. They are designed to reinforce concepts presented during the lectures. They are intended to provide users with the experience of running and trouble-shooting actual simulations.

Who should attend
