Matching meshes - map nodes

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,


I need to mesh the upper part of the cube and I want the nodes of the mesh to be exactly on those I have projected.

Basically I would like to map the nodes in order to join them afterwards using 1-D elements.


How can this can be done?

it's very simple:

1) mesh the cube (2d>automesh)

2) project node of cube onto flat surf (tool>project>to plane)

3) ruled mesh from those nodes to outside boundary lines (2d>ruled>nodelist-linelist)


or from hm12, you can automesh both, then using imprint (2d>mesh edit>imprint) to make mapped nodes
