To skip the automatic resolving of an intersection within a body, use the environment variable:
To add the above environment variable:
In the below example, the CAD body contains overlapping elements. By using the environment variable, the automatic resolving of element intersection can be skipped.
#1: Surface Mesh (with NO environment variable)
On generating the surface mesh, it automatically tries to resolve the intersections. Due to this, the geometry is collapsed. Bringing it back to the original shape will take time.
#2: Surface Mesh (with environment variable)
The SIMLAB_SKIP_INTERSECTION_REMOVAL environment is set as described above.
Upon generating the surface mesh, it skips resolving the intersections within a body. After surface mesh, the element intersection will be resolved manually.
