Meshing Patran from full CAD to generating sector

Meshing Patran from full CAD to generating sector

Meshing Patran from full CAD to generating sector


I have a question.
I would like to use a CAD model of a fan propeller found in grabcad. I can import the model in Patran.
The problem is the following

It is a full CAD, and ideally I would like to have the generating sector (structure with cyclic symmetry).
And I would like to get a regular mesh, ideally with HEX8 or HEX20 finite elements.

Is it easy to get the CAD of the generating sector ? Since I am new with Patran, could you help me where to find documentation to achieve that ?

Sincerely yours

E. L.

This is not the appropriate forum for this question.

Recommend You go to Engineering Computer Programs Forum... https://www.eng-tips.com/threadcategory.cfm?lev2=2... … and post this 'computer program' question there.
