When trying to generate a high order mesh from a compound geometry gmsh exits with a segmentation fault. You can try skull.geo for instance.
Is compound geometry supposed to work with high order tools?
No yet - we're working on it.
Keeping this open until it is fixed.
Hello, is there any update on this issue?
Yes: we are in the process of completely rewriting the "compound" feature for Gmsh 3.x (with a different syntax and workflow).
(The old implementation will be kept in Gmsh 2.x - with the high-order limitation...
Can you give a rough estimation on when to expect the implementaion: this year, next year?
Thanky you very much!!!
We are reimplementing the "Compound" feature from scratch. Hopefully we'll get something usable by the end of the summer.
