 December 17, 2012, 09:59 cylinder mesh in polar coordinates #1 New Member   Join Date: Dec 2012 Posts: 3 Rep Power: 4 I am trying to accomplish a simple task, e.g. generate a cylindrical polar coordinate mesh in z,r,theta. and have not had much success. I think it should not be THAT difficult and I would appreciate help. Thanks for your support. Klaus

 January 18, 2013, 09:05 #3 New Member   Join Date: Dec 2012 Posts: 3 Rep Power: 4 I have actually solved the problem by sweeping a quarter cylinder around the axis with manually mapped low (Theta = 0°) and high (Theta = 90°) faces. Afterwards (in Setup) rotational copy (original + 3) around the axis to make a full cylinder.

Here are a few screenshots to follow how to get to a cylindrical polar mesh. I meshed the core separately (2 Bodies) to avoid artifacts on the center line.
