Imports ‘surface data’ for generating a mesh. Basically imports an object from your cad software.
Launch Surface Repair
When you import an object to Star CCM+, it might not import perfectly and that would affect the mesh, so this tool can be used to fix that. It can also be used to create areas/surfaces of interest such as inlets and outlets.
Clear Generated Meshes
Clears all previously generated meshes in Star CCM+.
Creates an initial surface mesh on the model
Generate Surface Mesh
Starts generating a surface mesh
Generate Volume Mesh
Starts generating a volume mesh
Initialises the solution. During solution initialization, each model that is activated in the simulation is instructed to allocate storage for its solution data. The data is then set according to the specified initial values for the model.
Carries out one complete iteration and then stops.
Iterates until it fulfils the number of steps set by the user.
Create or Open Scenes
Allows you to create or open a scene of your choice.
Restores the view to a zoom factor such that the model takes up most of the display.
Rotates the view around a focal point that your most recent mouse click in the display sets.
Allows you to zoom to a specific area in the display by clicking two points that define the opposing corners of the zoomed area.
Opens a drop-down menu that allows you to set, save or restore a view.
Reverses the latest change to the view.
Repeats a change that was subjected to the Previous View command.
Make Scene Transparent
Makes all parts transparent so that you can see all of them from any angle, and overrides the opacity settings of all the displayers in the scene.
Allows you to create a plane section derived part, which is normal to the view, by clicking two points in the display.
Allows you to measure a distance.
Play or Pause animation in active scenes
This toggles between playing the scene animation and pausing it.
Stop Animation in Active Scene
This stops the animation in the scene.
Single Step Animation Backwards in Active Scene
Goes backwards in the animation by 1 frame.
Single Step Animation Forwards in Active Scene
Goes forward in the animation by 1 frame.
Write a movie of the animation in open scene
Records the animation onto a video file.
Selects a specific area in the display by clicking two points that define the opposing corners of the area. Press
This lets you draw a zone by clicking and dragging to create a series of connected points. Objects within that zone are selected. Press
Provides options for selecting volumes, surfaces, or curves with either the rubberband or zone tool
