Hi everyone,

Could any one please tell me how one can improve the mesh transition between the prism elements to tetra elements (please see the attached image), (ideal propagation of at-least 1.2)?

I have tried laplasian pure and edge length quality smoothing for the tetras, the pure one seems to help a bit but not well enough. Im not sure if this matter but ill mention this anyway: Unfortunately I can only use delaunay mesher as I'm filling a volume that has hex surface mesh that I want it not changed.

any help is greatly appreciate,
Kind regards,

This may the size specification issue. Also this situation can be improved with denauly method (with AF and Tglib)
