Determine length of smallest tet element

Hello all,

Is there a command I can use to find the smallest length of the smallest tet in a meshed part?

Kind regards,



Short of writing a python script to find the smallest edge length, no, not directly. That script may already exist. I will ask around.

However, you could use the “inradius” quality metric to find the element with the smallest edge length. The inradius metric is the radius of the sphere that fits inside the tetrahedron. This will be the radius of the sphere that is tangent to each triangular face. The inradius will be directly related to the smallest edge. The element with the smallest inradius is printed out in the command window when you execute the quality command as shown in the image below.

Is this helpful?

Awesome Karl,

Thank you very much. Worked perfect.
