How to improve mesh transition?
1 Attachment(s)
Hi everyone,

Could any one please tell me how one can improve the mesh transition between the prism elements to tetra elements (please see the attached image), (ideal propagation of at-least 1.2)?

I have tried laplasian pure and edge length quality smoothing for the tetras, the pure one seems to help a bit but not well enough. Im not sure if this matter but ill mention this anyway: Unfortunately I can only use delaunay mesher as I'm filling a volume that has hex surface mesh that I want it not changed.

any help is greatly appreciate,
Kind regards,

This may the size specification issue. Also this situation can be improved with denauly method (with AF and Tglib)

Can you give me a hint what you mean with AF and tgilb? I have the same problem as mention above right now.

Thank you very much!
