Hi all

I am looking at refining the mesh in my model and was wondering if anyone could help me with the width of my prism layers. The thickness of the prism layers is fine (in terms of y+) but I was wondering if there was a way to make the width smaller so that the layers do not look so thin (like pancakes).

Thanks

The width of the cells is based on the underlying surface size. Change the surface size to reduce the width.
