Hello guys, I am trying to build a room model. Till now i have been using square openings but im now supposed to use circular openings and thus i have to use 0-grids now. I have been advised to use a specific sort of o-grid. The picture of which is shown below. I want to create the same sort of o-grid for my model but cant seem to create it in that manner. Can you please help me by telling me exactly how to create the following type of o-grid structure? Thanks.

These are the views of the blocks without the mesh enabled of the kind of 0-grid i should use.

I dont know what im doing wrong. If i tick the "around block" in the split block>o-grid block panel i dont get the round kinda mesh around the openings. Rather the blocks around the openings are distorted in another fashion. Help me please

Yes you need to make the appropriate associations and I see that your model has three concentric circles so you may want to have three o grids all together to make a proper capture
