Viewing the Mesh Information

After the geometry or model mesh was meshed, the quality of the mesh part (or model mesh) or simulation mesh can be examined.

  1. Select the model (or part) in the model tree (Construction tab).
  2. View the mesh information using one of the following workflows:
    • From the right-click context menu, click Info.
    • On the Mesh tab, in the Meshing group, click the  Info icon.
The Mesh information dialog shows a histogram of the edge length distribution, the average edge length and the standard deviation of the edge lengths. The spread gives an indication of the quality of the mesh and shows how many edges are longer than the desired length.
You can also view the number of triangles (flat and curvilinear), tetrahedra, voxels, line segments (straight and curvilinear) and VEP cuboids1.
