Default Cylinder Geometry and Blocking

I'm a complete ICEM newbie (just started learning a week ago) never did any 3d models before or in that case, meshing.

Anyway i have a geometry where a smaller cylinder is connected to a larger diameter cylinder. I just used the normal blocking methods introduced in the tutorials as well as o-grid creation.

I've managed to create a mesh but it seems like the junction between the pipes the mesh cells directions dont look "in-line" i.e. they are angled. Is this ok or is there another way to block this geometry more effectively to avoid this?

Hi,
You can generate blocking on larger cylinder, then create two o-grids and extrude faces to create blocking on smaller cylinder. Check this thread: Problem with "cooper" (sweep) mesh , the geometry is quite similar.

thanks a lot for this! Definitely shows how inexperienced I am.
