The Mesh Copy control enables you copy mesh from one body to another. This option can be used to reduce the mesh setup time for repetitive bodies/parts. Association to CAD is maintained after performing mesh copy.

Mesh controls are scoped only to the source anchor body. When the mesh is generated, the source anchor body is meshed and the mesh is then copied to targets.

You can scope the Mesh Copy control to either a geometry selection or a named selection as follows:

  1. Insert a Mesh Copy control by right-clicking the Mesh object in the Tree Outline and selecting Insert > Mesh Copy.
  2. In the Details view, define the scope of the selection:
    • To apply the mesh copy to a geometry selection, set the Scoping Method to Geometry Selection. Select a face for the Source Anchor.

  3. To apply the mesh copy to a named selection, set the Scoping Method to Named Selection. Select the appropriate Named Selection for the Source Anchor.

    Define the scope for the target:

    • To apply the mesh copy to a geometry selection, set the Target Scoping to Geometry Selection. Select the appropriate faces for the Target Anchors.
    • To apply the mesh copy to a named selection, set the Target Scoping to Named Selection. Select the appropriate Named Selection for the Target Anchors.

In this tutorial, you will learn to use Copy Mesh tool with  using Ansys Meshing. With this tool you can create meshes faster.
