"memory error in eNewElement"

Recommended Posts


I get the following error, while generating the two 2D generic mesh (consisting of triangles).

"memory error in eNewElement" after about 99% of the meshing by scalar paving density is


I have about 44000 points for the scatter dataset and I have 2 GB RAM memory.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

If the message you are receiving is "Memory error in elNewElement.", this would indicate that you have run out of memory. In a 32-bit windows operating system, a single process is limited to access 3 GB of memory. You appear to have reached this limit.

You could try the following:

* Load only the data essential to the mesh you are creating.

* Filter your scatter set as explained on this page: http://www.xmswiki.com/index.php?title=SMS...ter_(Data_Menu) to reduce the size of your scatter set

* Change your meshing options to produce a courser mesh with fewer nodes and elements.
