Locking Domains

This task shows you how to lock a domain both in the Surface Mesher workshop and in the Advanced Surface Mesher workshop.

  1. Click Lock Domain in the Edition Tools toolbar.

    The Trap Type dialog box appears

    You can use multi-selection:

    • using an intersection polygon trap: all the domains which have non-empty intersection with the trap will be selected.
    • using an inclusive polygon trap: all the domains that are completely included within the trap will be selected.
  2. Select the domain to be locked.

    This domain is now transparent:

    • any modification applied to neighboring domain will not impact the locked domain.
    • the locked domain cannot be re-meshed.

If you select two domains which are not homogeneous, a warning box appears: Do you want to lock the selected domains? If you click No, the domains will be unlocked.
