The R-Mesh macro can be accessed by clicking the Mesh menu and selecting R Mesh, or it can be selected from the Utility Menu.

This tool rapidly generates a quad / tria shell mesh ideal for representing rigid tool surfaces utilizing four parameters that determine the precision of the mesh relative to the geometry as well as the overall size of the meshed model. The parameters are:

• | Minimum edge length - The length of the smallest element edge out of all elements in the mesh. |

• | Maximum edge length - The length of the largest element edge out of all elements in the mesh. |

• | Chordal deviation - The maximum allowable chordal deviation between the edge of an element and the adjacent geometry. |

• | Fillet angle - The maximum allowable angle between two adjacent elements. Similar to chordal deviation, it determines the number of element edges that are used to describe the curvature of a given shape. |

• | Mesh to current component |

Note: | The mesh generated by this method has no associativity with the original surface. |
