Hi meshers =)

Got a question regarding surface meshing using ANSYS CFX.

With ICEM meshing using the blocking method, i've been able to generate a hex mesh which conforms around a curved surface. This gives virtually an error free surface mesh. However, with ANSYS MA tet mesh this produces a 'jagged' mesh around the curved surface. I've not been able identify the option within MA to have the tet mesh conform to the surface.

Is there a workaround instead?

Can you post some views of your geometry?

Is it a surface geometry you want to mesh.? if yes then use the Mapped face meshing.
Or if it is cylindrical solid then use sweep method.

It should work.
