im currently tring to test an FSAE space frame design anf after meshing tubes dissapear with no errors appearing. please could someone tell me where i might be going wrong? I have attached the file. Thanks
Have you tried using a finer mesh? Typically if there is no mesh shown in a given area it means that the mesh has not accurately recreated that portion of the geometry.
yes i have tryed a finer mesh and this still does not work. I have tryed changing the mesh for just the dissapearing tubes also but they still dissapear
Thanks for your reply though
beam mesh in this case so meshing won't really help
this is a modeling issue
i can repro in 2013 sp3.0 with a brand new study, cut list updated and joints recalculated
it looks like it has to do with the corner treatments
i'd see what you can do to make the model more simple (remove corner treatments, don't worry about the beams overlapping..etc) and see if that solves your problem. if it doesn,t remodel the ones that aren't meshing.
this would need some tech support to dig into exactly what the cause of failure is for each beam that isn't meshing. (ie, likely a software issue that needs to be reported to a reseller > solidworks)
unfortunately this means some work on your end and nothing necessarily wrong that you're doing.
Gemerally speaking good beam models can be had by using the following techniques but they are evolving over the various releases - they are working pretty well for me:
