|1.||Select the solid elements subpanel.|
|2.||Indicate the elements you want to split:|
|•||Pick the elements on your model.|
|•||Click elems and choose from the extended entity selection menu.|
|3.||Choose the pattern to use when splitting the elements (See Comments).|
In this example, the elements were split into hexas.
The three available patterns include:
|•||Splitting the solid elements into hexas|
|•||Splitting the solid elements into a minimal number of tetras|
|•||Splitting the solids into symmetric sets of tetras suitable for CFD|
When you split elements whose nodes are associated to a surface, the new nodes created are also on the surface. To associate a node to a surface, use the Node Edit panel.
All split operators work on both first and second order elements.
