The Basics
 
Hello,

I'm a new ANSYS ICEM-CFD user who is trying to create a very simple test case to export from ANSYS so that later when I am working with very large biological tissue meshes I'll have the basics already down. Right now, I'm trying to create a simple cube which is volumetrically meshed into a 2x2x2 Cartesian grid. I've gotten as far as creating the cube (Geometry>Create-Modify Surface>Standard Shapes>Box) but when I get to the Mesh>Global Mesh setup I get lost quick. It seems I am only able to make a mesh with hundreds of thousands of elements (or millions), how can I make one with 8?

Thanks,
-Ian
