Problem importing surface mesh using netgen

2 years 8 months ago #3569 by user85
Hello guys,

I want to import a surface mesh from an external source using the netgen gui.

As a first test, I loaded a step file with a simple geometry and exported both a volume mesh (object_neutral_format.mesh) and a surface mesh (
As a next step, I imported the volume mesh. This yields the expected result.

However, if I import the surface mesh, the object is deformed because the z coordinates are scaled with a factor 10 (see winmerge.png). Is this a bug or my fault?

Thank you for your help!

Hi Max,

I think there was a fix regarding some scaling effects recently.
Since it works for me (version NGSolve-6.2.2101-17-g7fcf4d59d) I would suggest to check your version and update in case it is older than mine.

Hope that fixes your problem.

Hi Christoph,

you are absolutely right. Netgen works perfectly after installing the current version (NGSolve-6.2.2101-143-g1f064c8ac).

Thank you very much for your help!
