Hi

suggestion for you:

- find free edge

- isolate only ^edges

- find edge element by initial node

- find attached edge elements

- find nodes attached to those elements => hole nodes

Hi Tinh,

 

Thanks for your valuable suggestion.

 

Please refer the attachments for model.

My model looks similar having tetra mesh (but it could be of any type).

This model is of two part (upper and lower ) it has some small holes on middle part.

could you please suggest some API.

script should select internal nodes for any kind of model similar to one which i attached.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Pandurang

Hi Tinh,

Thanks for reply.

 

I think this wont work in my case. see attached images details of upper part.

right now i am able select the nodes by changing feature angle.

but every model wont work.

I want to create tool with little user interaction, so that it work every time.

i am just beginner  in hm customization.

What you say?

 

Thanks & Regards,

PD

If the hole is not cylindrical, you have to know its mathematical formulation, othewise it is impossible applied for every model

I can do it base on shape of model but it cost much time

ok.

 

Would u please guide me to get the solution for this model?

one solution i thick of is:

1. create plane whose normal is axis of model.

2. get the intersection node.

3. translating plane along axis to get intersecting nodes.

what u say??

 

Regards,

PD
