Thanks so much @Jousef and @Get_Barried for all your help. Sorry for the long post but there is a lot to say
To start from the beginning, Jousef, i have tried my best to make the CAD geometry as watertight as possible. I know that this is the most important step for a good mesh and as i have said, the Solidworks part files create a non-intersecting solid body as far as i know. It is hard to pinpoint exactly where intersections occur if they are very small and apart from the picture i provided, i havent found any obvious ones.
For Get_Barried, addressing some of the things you said to ignore: (good for Reference i agree haha)
- No the previous meshes were not done more than a week beforehand. Especially the mesh named Wing1andDiffuser1
- As far as i know i have to re-mesh the entire car when i add aero features to the model. (because its a different STL file)
3, Yes i have made a set of instructions for making meshes just like the ones provided on the simscale platform. Unless i make a small mistake all of the mesh Parameters, boundary conditions, and surface refinements all have the same values.
I have also noticed the updates to the simscale platform and before i origonally created this forum post i ask the same question through the quick chat channel and got this response.
‘Hi Dan, Sorry for the late reply. This is a recent issue that some of our users are facing, we are looking into the problem and will let you update you soon. In the meantime, may I ask that you give your CAD model a second look? I noticed that the mesher does give an error as in the image below, please look for any open faces and self-intersections in the CAD.
Regarding the memory space i was going to ask Jousef about this. I am currently signed up for the Student Plan with 10,000 Simulation hours through the sponsorship. However in the project selection page it states that i have 2235/3000 core hours used. First, i am not sure if this is a mistake because i would think this would say 2235/10,000 and second, even if this was true i should not have used up that amount of hours with these meshes.
I am a bit confused how i could have run out of memory unless it about the core hours issue. i would like to avoid if possible deleting meshes and simulatoins as it makes it much easier to reference everything in one place. Also, in the previous year simulating with simscale, my teammate had 29 meshes and 27 simulations and kept everything in one project.
Thanks for all the support,
