I am facing some problems during the mesh creation. The geometry has been created in OnShape and exported as a STEP. The fact is that since July I have been working with a geometry created with the same procedure without any problem, but now I did some minor modifications on the geometry and now the mesher complains like this:
A problem occured in surface mesh generation. Retrying meshing with quadrangle surface elements disabled for the following solid: B24_TE28463
I tried some slightly different geometries, modified from the original mesh that worked, and all of them give me the same error but changing the name of the “supposed solid”. And I say “supposed solid” because there’s no solid named like that in my geometry…
Another thing I tried is to import directly the geometry from Onshape, which gives out the same error. This time, however, in one of the trials it points out to an actual solid of my geometry. A solid that hasn’t suffered any change from the previous geometry iteration… Below you can see the original geometry and the modified geometry:
Modified geometry (and the unchanged solid that triggers the error in a test)
What can I do to skip these problems and get the mesh done?
Thanks in advance.
Besides that, I also tried to remesh the original mesh again so as to check if there was a problem with the mesher itself, since a lot of changes have been introduced recently and maybe some of them introduced some bug to the mesher, but the mesh of the original geometry keeps working fine…
I also thought that it could be a problem with Onshape, maybe some software update from July on affected the geometry generation internally somehow. Do you know if it can be possible?
