A cylindrical surface getting swollen

Hello forum,
with this parameters

  • MMG meshing parameters
  • Hausdorff distance: 2.01053
  • hmin: 4.02105
  • hmax: 80.4211
  • hgrad: 1.3

the “long” cylindrical surfaces of the shown component

whose initial triangularion is shown

after surface meshing have become swollen, as shown?

Grazie mille


Can you try using a smaller value for sharp angle detection, say 5 degrees? If you are using command line then, -ar 5.
Refer to: -ar – Mmg Platform

Once you have the first remeshed part, again use mmg with the default angle detection to generate better quality mesh.

I think what is happening is that MMG is not able to detect the sharp edge, hence it tries to smoothen the surface.

Thank you very much,
exactly as you said. In the picture, "I) " means one iteration with ;
"I) , II) " means two iterations, the first with ar = degrees1, the
last with ar = degrees2
