Import GiD Mesh

PREFEKO supports the import of mesh files from GiD .msh files.

Figure 1. The IN - Include an external file (GiD) dialog.

For GiD mesh files, the material type or layer property is converted to the Feko label during the import.

The import options are similar to the options for NASTRAN and ABAQUS mesh imports. The following should be noted regarding the support of special elements in the GiD mesh.
  • Hexahedral elements are not supported in the Feko import of GiD meshes.
  • Nodes that only contain 2 coordinates are interpreted as X and Y coordinates on the z = 0 plane.
  • Quadrilateral elements are divided into triangle elements along the shortest diagonal during import.
