Assign a mesh generator: about

Mesh generator assignment

Choice of mesh generators on geometric entities (of face or volume type) is called assignment of mesh generators.

Operation mode

Two operation modes provided are as follows:

Mode is used to assign a mesh generator to …
completion a group of faces / volumes
modification some faces / volumes

Completion mode: specific features

In completion mode the entities are made invisible in the graphic scene during the assignment, which allows a fast and effective assignment of the groups of faces and groups of volumes.


After a mesh generator is assigned to the face / volume, the Mesh tab of the face / volume dialog box is updated.

This is presented in the example below (the MAPPED mesh generator is assigned to the face n°20):
