Meshing the model

You will now generate the finite element mesh. You can choose the meshing technique that Abaqus/CAE will use to create the mesh, the element shape, and the element type. Abaqus/CAE uses a number of different meshing techniques. The default meshing technique assigned to the model is indicated by the color of the model when you enter the Mesh module; if Abaqus/CAE displays the model in orange, it cannot be meshed without assistance from you.
