    Hi,

    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,
    Pradeep

    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.
