Hello everyone,
I am relatively new to Gambit and was wondering why everytime i am trying to attach a boundary layer to a circular face, it gives me a triangle! Please do suggest a possible answer!
Thank you in advance!

Interestingly when i try to make boundary layer separately in another file in the segment i want to male BL for, it works perfectly. But when it is part of a bigger model, it stops displaying the BL as I would have wanted it to. Please help!
Thank you!

im somewhat new to gambit too so maybe u've already tried this but if u havent, try meshing the edges of the circular face before applying the boundary layer

Imego is right: you get triangle because your edge isn't meshed.
Mesh your edge first
