How to create 2D mesh using SimScale tool?

I have a surface geometry, can be seen in my public project nozzle trial. How do I mesh that?
Meshing process always fails with error no volume element, its is surface there wont be volume in that but as far as i know we can provide surface thickness or element thickness during meshing process, How I do that?

@dps - SimScale currently does only allow volume mesh generation. Therefore there’s currently no way to generate a 2D mesh on SimScale. Nozzle trial sounds like a CFD project, right? Here you could generate a 2D mesh locally and upload it. Or you solve the problem in 3D.

Hope that helps!


@dheiny thank you for your help !


@dps, glad I could help! Let me know how it goes and if you need more hints.
