Patterning Meshes
 
Here is a picture of a set of bodies similar to what I am working with:

I was wondering if there was any way I could sweep this group of bodies quickly and if I could make their meshes identical without having to manually select each face/edge etc. manually.

A: Figured out that I could select Multizone and select all the bodies using 1 of the faces as a source face to create identical meshes for each.


Now I was wondering if there was any way to apply local settings (sizing, inflation etc.) to just one of the bodies and get it to apply to all of them?

You can select the faces or edges you want to have the same properties and then just apply a single sizing to all of them. If 16 bodies are all you have it shouldn't be a problem.

I am curious about what you are simulating though.

Thanks.

I exaggerated the geometry a lot, but I am modeling flow past thin walled baffles that change direction of flow (similar to inlet stators in turbines)
