Translate a face. Pb of version ?


in the tutorial "Incompressible Flow Through a Pipe Into a Box" at the time to translate the "face to be the seed source for the particle tracks", it is impossible to translate.
Is this a problem with the 32 bit version that is fixed in 64 bit version?

Should we not test the 32-bit and use the 64-bit?

Definitely try Caedium 64-bit version

Yes, there is likely a picking problem in the unsupported 32-bit version of Caedium. I would definitely recommend using the 64-bit version if you have the option.

In the mean time, after you paste to create the new face, instead of picking it directly try selecting the background, then in the Select dialog open the sim->Faces branch and select the last face in the list. The numbering of new faces is sequential so you'll find the latest created face at the end of the list.

Also with the 32-bit version watch the scaling of the geometry in the tutorials. If you did not create your geometry from scratch you'll need first to create an axes using the Others->Axes on the Geometry Palette. Then scale your geometry by [0.001 0.001 0.001] using the Transforms->Scale and the new Axes.
