You can use ElmerGrid to tranlsate mesh and merge nodes using -merge flag

However I much prefer Salome for meshing

Re: Elmer Install on Windows 10 not working

I use Salome, very powerful modeler and mesher.

It exports mesh to unv file and ElmerGrid will translate

Re: [SOLVED] Comparing with Comsol: many questions for you :D

It is the error that occurs when you point to the wrong body. I downloaded your mesh and sif and the mesh was body 1 not body 2

Body 1
Target Bodies(1) = 2
Name = "Body 1"
Equation = 1
Material = 1
End

Changed to
Target Bodies(1) = 1

and it ran.
