Merge blocking
 
Hi everybody,

I've made a complex blocking in a reduced volume surrounding a 3D body and I'd like to merge this blocking in a larger domain that already has a blocking.
I've tried to directly import the small blocking in the larger domain but it just replace the former one. How can I merge these blockings without losing any of them?
I haven't found any useful info in the ICEM guide.

Thanks

Use sub-topo

Thanks for the advice.

Now I've imported one sub-topology into the former one. The problem is that I have common surfaces and edges with different meshes from each of the sub-topologies. Also I can't view both meshes at the same time.

How can I create a single mesh for both sub-topologies?

right button click on one topology and select merge...
