Absolute Expression

To specify an Absolute Expression, set the Mesh size type to Absolute Expression. This option allows you to specify a simple text expression to set the size of the mesh on all geometric entities within the model.

You must enter the expression in the text entry area provided. The expression may be a function of x,y,z coordinates, and must follow the syntax described in the appendix. The following example illustrates an expression that enforces a mesh size of 0.5 at "y" locations greater than or equal to 0.0, and a mesh size of 0.1 at y locations having a value less than 0.0. value = if ( y >= 0, .5, .1).
