FEM: mesh: interested in STL volume mesh?

Postby joha2 » Mon Jan 27, 2020 6:53 pm

Dear FEM people,

Is there any interest in meshing an STL mesh by gmsh within the FEM workbench? I already wrote a macro for that would provide this code. But I don't know whether this is appropriate for the FEM workbench and where to implement the actual command (perhaps within the mesh command group?). Opinions are appreciated :mrgreen: (Btw. the reverse operation from FEM mesh to STL mesh would also be nice.)

Best wishes
Johannes

I think it would be good to have your command.

About the reverse operation, it seems it already exists, FEM FemMesh2Mesh.
