Remove planes from geogen figure

Asked by CVallejos on 2018-02-15

Hi everyone, i made a cone like figure in geogen with ConvexPolyhedron intersecting a lot of planes , now i want to remove the planes in a simulation to liberate the particles like the slope example in tutorial, moving the planes or removing them. but i can't find the way to do that.

Thanks for the help

Hi CVallejos,

The planes used to define a ConvexPolyhedron in GenGeo are not included in the geometry file; only the particles (and bonds if you generated them) will be exported. Hence, when you load this geometry into ESyS-Particle using sim.readGeometry(..), the planes will not be imported. If you wish for some/all of these planes to be included in a simulation, you need to manually add these as planar walls using sim.createWall(..) as part of your ESyS-Particle simulation script.

Cheers,

Dion
