Tutorial: Run Using Existing Mesh

Submit a run starting with an existing mesh file.

  • The mesh file units should be in meters.
  • The part names should match the names of the geometry parts in Inspire RTM with 3D suffixed. For example, if the geometry part is spoiler, then the mesh part is spoiler3D.
  • The mesh file should contain only the meshed components.
