Hello every one, i think every one is doing fine. I am having some problem with my model. In my model (attached file), I want to have finer mesh in the red zone (throughout the whole cylinder inside upto base). How can i do that. I am new in this software and thanks in advance for your assistance.

Go to tools and right click on volume shapes. select cylinder.
generate a cylinder the place you want.
go to Continua/mesh and right click on volumetric controls and click new.
select the shape you made and determined the size of mesh that you want.

You can also do this by making a cylinder Part and doing the same steps as he described.


I have a feeling volume shapes will be dropped sometime in the future as they duplicate the features of parts. Seems like everything geometry wise is being pushed to parts (i.e. parts based meshing...)
