When I read in an .stl file and process it in dualsphsycis for simulation, I loose all the surface/part names from the stl file. How do we preserve surface names? Thanks.
You need to specify the name of your STL file in your XML file
<drawfilestl file="myfile.stl" objname="myfile"
@Sofiane_Ben I think the question is more about when one has complex geometries with a lot of named selections like, "Top Surface", "Middle Connection" etc. just as examples. usercfd can correct me if I am wrong.
Another question I have though to you; have you found any use in using "objname" parameter? Is it helpful for anything in the XML file or?
objnname is just to mention your file name in XML file , for me in my projects I started by creating my geometry and add all the features that I want using freecad and designSph Addons, then I will modify my XML file if I would to add mDBC for example as it's not yet available in designsph Addon in freecad
hello yes, what Asalih described is the correct scenario I am looking for. Do I need to break single parts into individual stl files and then read all those stl names in xml file? Do I need to create individual pointmin pointmax domain for each file then? Or an overall big domain encompassing all stl files will work? Or is there an alternate way?
hello, Any comment on this topic? thanks.
