I try to make prism at the bed of the container, and around the pipe.


in the bed of the container, it is ok to be generated. but around the pipe, I can't get the prism layers. why it's like this? any method can fix it?

what i did is make the round surface to be prismed, like the bottom surface.
anything wrong?

You could assign the internal surface of the hole as a PART, then set up the prism data in Part Mesh Set-Up (not forgetting to tick the prism check-box)?

Put the boundary lines and circle in different Part when you create them. Then, select the cylinder boundary and the bed boundary as Prism in Mesh -> Part Mesh Setup.
I selected just the STATOr-BLADE boundary in the picture attached to make it prism.
