Hi,

I would like to generate a surface that is a part of an elliptic paraboloid but after several attempts, I failed. My goal is to mesh the volume inside.

If it is possible to generate such a surface with Trelis, what is the strategy?

Thanks in advance,

Paul

I’m not sure if this is what you are looking for

reset

create vert 0 0 0

create vert -1 1 0

create vert 1 1 0

create curve vertex 2 vertex 3 vertex 1 parabolic

split curve 1 fraction .5

delete Curve 3

sweep curve 2 yaxis angle 360 steps 20
