TOOLS COMMANDS © Fluent Inc., Jul-04 5-1 5. TOOLS COMMANDS GAMBIT tools commands allow you to perform the following types of operations: Coordinate system Size function Turbo Geometry Cleanup Coordinate-system commands allow you to create and work with GAMBIT local coordinate systems. Turbo commands allow you to define and generate turbo profiles and to create turbo volumes. Size-function commands allow you to create and attach size functions to geometric entities as a means to control mesh element sizes for triangular and tetrahedral meshes. The geometry cleanup command provides allows you to identify and automatically fix geometry problems such as very short edges, holes, and sharp angles.
