Debugging the Mesh Process...

Once you have determined that there is a meshing problem either because of error messages or excessive run times, there is very little that can be done in the Integrated Mode to debug the model. If the meshing has created an excessive number of elements you may first try to simplify or de-feature the geometry as much as possible. Otherwise the best debug tool available is the Independent Mode of Pro/MECHANICA. Transfer the model to Independent Mode.

You should notice that the UI looks much different. The following steps should progressively lead you through the process of debugging a mesh problem. You may find the solution or valuable clues anywhere along the way.

> Read the Log File and Check Model Summary
> Review Geometry for Errors
> Shell Mesh all Surfaces
> Volume Mesh all Parts
