Hi,

is there a possibility to snap the inner edge of the first prism layer to the curve from where it's grown in ICEM 14? So the inner edge would be a curve instead of a line.

Thanks,
Attila

Unfortunately it's not working. The edges of the tetras/extruded prisms are not snapped to the geometry at all.

Thanks but it just splits the edge not snaps to the curve, e.g. i'm still getting line edge not circular. Anyway, using this feature ends up in non-manifold vertices.

Thank you,
Attila
