Default 3D Aircraft

Posts: n/a
I have meshed the surface of the 3d aircraft with a size function and then meshed the symmetry face of the block that the aircraft is in using a size function. Lastly I have meshed the flow volume, (as tutorial 14 says). This entire meshing gives me 119,974 nodes but I am wanting more like 500,000 but it will not increase. I have changed the growthrates, the start size, the interval spacing, and the max. number of faces in the defaults meshes toolbar. When remeshing, the transcript says it has been sucesfull but when imported into fluent it says there is 119,974 nodes. Please can someone tell me how to increase this number thanks.
