Hex Edge Mesh Ignored by ICEM
Any ideas as to why the lone edge in the image below has no mesh nodes on it, despite the fact that I declared its edge meshing and copied parameters from it to all parallel edges?

It looks like it is an association issue. Remove your curves associations of this part, and redo them.

associate Edge to wrong curve...
Right, The edge has been associated to the curve or point on the left side, so all its nodes are jumping to the nearest point on the curve it is associated to...

To check this another way, right click on "Edges" in the display tree and turn on the option for "Bunching". You will see a green arrow from the problem edge to where it is associated...

To fix this, just go back to the associations DEZ and associate edge to curve... (or just hit the hotkey "p" while on the blocking tab). Select the problem edge and the curve behind it... Hit apply. If this is part of a longer series of edges associated to a series of curves, you could select the multiple edges and then the multiple curves they are associated to...

That should sort you out...
