Hi,

I could do that using 'hex' keyword with 5 vertices instead of using 'pyr'.

Thanx, Hari

Hi,

I am also looking for a way to produce a pyramid in blockMesh. However for me it does not work to use the hex keyword with five entries. I also tried
hex (0 1 2 3 4 4 4 4)
However that also did not work. How can I get a nice pyramid?

Thanks!
