Empty volumes
Hello everyone!
I'm doing a 3D mesh on ICEM CFD based o a 2D block. I did the 2D blocking, created the surfaces of the 3D geometry (that is prismatic), produced the FLUID body and at blocking I have put "2D to 3D" with the "translate" method specifying the translate distance. After meshing he doesnt create the volumes but only 2D elements in the faces. Does anyone know what might be the problem?
Thanks a lot!!

Use scan plane to see the 3d mesh. By default ICEM only display the mesh on active parts (surface aka shells) and does not display the volume mesh.
