The
Scale Mesh dialog box allows you to convert the mesh from various units of measurement to SI or to apply custom scale factors to the individual coordinates of the mesh. See Section
6.8.11 for details.

Controls

Domain Extents
displays the Cartesian coordinate extremes of the nodes in the mesh. (These values are not editable; they are purely informational.)

Xmin, Ymin, Zmin
shows the minimum values of Cartesian coordinates in the mesh.

Xmax, Ymax, Zmax
shows the maximum values of Cartesian coordinates in the mesh.

Scaling
contains controls for converting units and setting the scale factors automatically.

Convert Units
allows you to use the conversion factors provided by
ANSYS FLUENT. Then indicate the units used when creating the mesh by selecting the appropriate abbreviation for meters, centimeters, millimeters, inches, or feet from the
Mesh Was Created In drop-down list. The
Scaling Factors will automatically be set to the correct values (e.g., 0.0254 meters/inch).

Specify Scaling Factors
allows you to manually specify a scale factor in each of the Cartesian coordinate directions.

Mesh Was Created In
contains a list of common units of length. The
Scaling Factors will automatically be set based on your selection. The units include common SI and British units such as centimeters (cm), millimeters (mm), inches (in), and feet (ft).

Scaling Factors
contains the factors applied to the mesh in each of the Cartesian coordinate directions. You can enter values manually, or use the
Mesh Was Created In list to set scale factors automatically.

X
is the scale factor in the
direction.

Y
is the scale factor in the
direction.

Z
is the scale factor in the
direction (appears only in 3D).

Scale
multiplies each of the node coordinates by the specified scale factors.

Unscale
divides each of the node coordinates by the specified scale factors.

View Length Unit In
contains a list of common units of length. The
Domain Extents will automatically be set based on your selection. The units include common SI and British units such as centimeters (cm), millimeters (mm), inches (in), and feet (ft). The units of length in the
Set Units dialog box will change each time you change your selection in the
View Length Unit In drop-down list.
