Hi. I'm trying to mesh this sphere in between a cylindrical roller. The main idea is to create a cricket ball pitcher simulation. I had problem in meshing the cylinder as I can't sweep it with mesh tool. By browsing the internet I found out the way to mesh a sphere is by "dividing the sphere into 8 parts and mesh them one by one and then glue them together."

I'm new to Ansys and I was hoping that someone can help to guide me a step by step tutorial on how to mesh this sphere. Or is it there is other way on meshing a sphere?

Included here is the geometry of the design.

Thank you in advance.

why would you want to sweep it, just use tets with inflation, they are as good for the solver these days, gone are the days when the solver couldn't handle tets as good

Hi hwet!
Yea I thought if I want to mesh something I need to sweep it in ANSYS. I'm new on ANSYS, could you give a step by step on how to do it?

The cricket ball will be launched from the roller. More like a cricket ball pitching machine with 3 roller(Y-type roller). I want to simulate the trajectory of the cricket ball by varying each of the speed of the roller.
