What does " Elements : 0 " signifies?

    I am interested to generate a 3D volume mesh for a wing inside a rectangular domain. I imported the ".STEP" file into NETGEN.

    When i generated mesh in Netgen (4.9.13), it shows :
    Points : 184413 Elements : 0 Surf. Elements : 91932

    What does " Elements : 0 " signifies? Does it mean there is something wrong in the Geometry file or the meshing?

    Would be great to hear your inputs on this issue. Thank you very much.

    Best Regards,

    I guess you just exported the surfaces. For example, in Autodesk Inventor it's possible to choose between volume, surface or just line export in the step-options.
