Where is Meshing menu for CFD Exercise #1/Laminar flow in pipe?

Hi - trying to work with CFD Exercise #1 (link from tutorial below) - cannot find a way to get started on meshing process. There seems to be no menu item for it, though others who have worked the exercise have it available when I copy their results.

Did I miss something or…?

Thanks

Hi @Thinkerer!

Feel free to copy my project here: https://www.simscale.com/projects/jousefm/laminar_flow_through_a_pipe_3/ - can you also let me know where you got the link from (really SimScale Academy or a tutorial)? Will exchange it with an updated version, thanks!

Likely it has not been updated for the new Workbench interface, please see this topic to get you going :wink:

Hey Dale,

I assume that the problem is that old “copy-links” to projects are buggy when it comes to the meshing tree item. I already reported this to our engineers and this is already under investigation.

Cheers!

Hi Jousef,

I’m working directly from the tutorial .pdf on-screen here, so will try fiddling with @DaleKramer’s suggestion. I’ve been able to run the simulation after copying your example, but am still having trouble getting the visualization to behave - is there an updated tutorial for this as well?

Thanks

Scott

Got it to work finally - kind of a disconnect between the menu and tutorials, but a load of fun to mess with. I’m a fan already and I’m only 1/3 of the way through it. Thanks!!
