Mesh Level Control

In the meshing control panel, there are five levels of meshing which you can choose from. In general, you can move the slider toward left to reduce element counts and thus speed up the computation. On the other hand, if you wish to have more accurate computation result, you can move the slider toward right to produce denser elements.

More Details about the Accuracy Level Are Described in the Followings:

Level 1:

This is the most recommended level for the user who wants to have a quick filling analysis result. In most cases, the solid mesh generated in this level is applied for demo purpose. Under this level, the program generates the solid mesh with fewer elements and performs CAE analysis with higher acceleration ratio.

 

Level 2:

This is the recommended level to do general filling/packing/cooling simulations for normal mechanical parts. Under this level, the program generates the solid mesh with slightly fewer elements and performs CAE analysis with general settings.

 

Level 3:

This level is set to be the default, designed to do general filling/packing/cooling simulations with better resolutions for normal mechanical parts.

 

Level 4:

This is the advanced level for getting full injection analysis (filling/packing/cooling/warpage) for thin and complicated parts. Under this level, the program generates meshes more elaborate and performs CAE analysis accurately. However, it is to be noted that more hardware resources are required.

 

Level 5:

This is the most recommended level for getting in-depth analysis for all kind of parts. Under this level, the program generates meshes more elaborate and performs CAE analysis accurately. If you want to have a further refined solid mesh, you can do it by modifying the target number of elements in the Options dialog. However, it is to be noted that more hardware resources are required.
