SMS: Redistributing arc vertices using size function

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm trying to use a size function to specify my mesh density, and in SMS v13.0.8 that means that I first need to redistribute the vertices on my arcs, using the same size function.

When I do this, it mostly works nicely, except that certain parts of the arcs get very tightly-spaced vertices (it turns out that they are placed at the minimum distance that I set the size function to truncate at). They're on parts of the arcs that "stick out", though they don't go far beyond the scatter data. One such place is my model's open boundary. I've attached a couple of screenshots. In both cases the scatter data that you can see is the size data - included to illustrate that I'm not trying to extrapolate way beyond it.

I've tried various different interpolation methods, and all give a similar result. Any ideas? Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks
