You're partly correct, there's no 3D Quad mesher available in FreeCAD by default but there is a 2D surface quad mesher:
It's 3D meshing right? Because I need to transfer it to AVL FIRE and making a simulation by using that model. But then the video I got for the steps to prepare the model for a simulation is completely Quadmesh without converting triangles. So it might make the steps a bit different.
After I completed meshing my model, I exported it into OBJ file and after that I converted it into STL file. When I opened the file with AVL FIRE, the Quad meshes are formed by 2 triangle mesh. Is my settings on instant mesh incorrect or is it the way that the quads are formed by merging 2 triangle mesh? Because I was hoping it to be only Quad mesh like the photo I attached below.mrdic wrote: ↑Tue Nov 03, 2020 11:34 amSure. https://raw.githubusercontent.com/wjako ... enshot.jpg
Do you have the steps to do it? Because I am new to this so I am not quite familiar with the way it should be done.keithsloan52 wrote: ↑Tue Nov 03, 2020 12:06 pmMy GDML workbench can create Quad and Triangle GDML Tessellated meshes. (Some shapes have a problem with Quad meshes).
Trouble is if you then use the facility to convert back to a FreeCAD mesh it makes the result with only triangles.
I use the Gmsh python library which is different from the Mesh workbench ( which is written in C++ I believe) but I don't believe it would be too difficult to update the FreeCAD mesh workbench to add support for quads using the Gmsh option.
