Re: Tetgen plugin

Hi,

what do you need tetgen for?
Standard workflow ist to make the mesh with a dedicated mesher like gmsh or Salomé and import it into Elmer.

Re: Unlisted Keywords in ElmerSolver

Hi, looking quickly at your sif, I didn't find any obvious mistake. Generally speaking unlisted keywords are not a problem as long as their type is declared and they are correctly used. Two observations, however: 1. are you sure that "scaler field" is the correct spelling? Shouldn't it be "scalar fi...

Re: Segmentation Fault - Heat and Static Current Conduction

Hi,

this message might give a hint:
ViewFactors' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
I didn't use Viewfactors so far, so I cannot help further...

Re: NSIS error installing binaries on Win 10 Pro

Hi,

I just installed Elmer successfully on a Win 10 Pro desktop machine, see viewtopic.php?f=2&t=6985. Did you take the nightly build as I did? If not, you might try it, it may work better.

HTH,

Re: New Windows installers

Re: New Windows installers

Update: I managed to find qwindows.dll in the right version and copied it into a platforms folder in the bin directory. The error message is the same, but now it additionnally says that a platform plugin for windows is found. In a forum I have found the remark that if the application is compiled in ...

Re: New Windows installers

Hi, I tried to find out something about the qt issue. It might have to do with the deployment process of qt. It seems that for Windows, qwindows.dll is needed, and that it has to reside in $ELMERHOME\bin\platforms. I didn't find a possibility to download the dll in the right version (5.13.2) without...

Re: New Windows installers

Hi,

I have just tried the new installer on a Win10 machine. ElmerGUI does not start ("no Qt platform plugin could be initialized").
ElmerSolver works.
Do I need to install Qt separately? If so, which package?

Re: Implementing updates/fixes without complete compiling

Hi, I remember having tried to compile Elmer on Windoze quite some time ago. It was before the move to cmake, so I cannot really help here. But maybe you can try to just compile the solver suite without ElmerGUI and take the GUI from the last binary build. That is what I did as I also didn't manage ...

Re: Reading ElmerSolver Results

Hi,

the extension .ep is for ElmerPost, the old Elmer postprocessor which is not supported any more.
If you want to use ParaView (which is recommended), just change the post file extension in the Simulation section to .vtu.

HTH,
Matthias
