Hello Peter,

I’m using 4.4.0 (under windows), and your script seems to work for me…

Oggetto: [Gmsh] ellipsoid issue


I am trying to create some ellipsoids in 3D and came across this solution:


Sphere(1) = {0, 0, 0, 0.5};

Dilate {{0, 0, 0}, {1.5, 1, 0.5}} { Volume{1}; }

Characteristic Length{:} = 0.1;

Mesh.Algorithm = 6;

This was posted on the webpage http://onelab.info/pipermail/gmsh/2018/011986.html<https://urlsand.esvalabs.com/?u=http%3A%2F%2Fonelab.info%2Fpipermail%2Fgmsh%2F2018%2F011986.html&e=9895bfa0&h=ea70f4cd&f=y&p=y>,however, the example appears to be generating one-point curves and so the meshing is failing.

I am using gmsh 4.4.1. I would be grateful for any suggestions and/or advice. I used a similar script before and not had this issue.

Thanks very much,
