Examine Menu

The Examine menu provides controls for viewing diagnostic information about your grid entities.

The available examine functions will be dependent upon your current selection. For mixed selections, the functions available will be those exclusive to each entity type selected. For instance, Volume is only valid for blocks. So if any blocks are selected, Volume will be shown in the menu. If Volume is selected, any non-block entities currently selected will be ignored.


Tip: It is always wise to take a look at the quality of your mesh in Examine before exporting it to your CAE solver. Doing this will help you catch any grid problems you may have before they become an issue in regards to your solution accuracy.

All functions will place you into the Examine panel with functionality pertinent to that diagnostic.

The next to last option in the list of diagnostic functions is Examine Last. Note that this option is not actually a diagnostic function; it is simply a convenient way to quickly re-enter the Examine panel with the most recently used diagnostic function.


Note: The Overset tab is only available when an overset assembler has been selected in the Grid, Overset, Attributes panel.
