Default prism mesh in 2D

hi guys!

does anybody know, how I can generate a prism layer in 2D?

it works without problems in 3D, because you can pick a surface to set the layers on. in 2D though, there isn't anything like that... it also fails when I pick my spline to set the layers on.

I hope someone can help me ...

The easiest thing to do is use a 2D blocking with bunching, convert to a surface mesh, then extrude that.

You can build your model in 3D - then delete all of the mesh but the surface in question - and extrude that. There is always a way in ICEM - but it's not always elegant.

Also - if you have a QUAD license (for patch-based surface meshing) you can use that to mesh the surface and use 'number of layers' (I think) to build the 'prism' layers off the desired curve.
