Partially swept mesh
Hi all,
I'm new to FLUENT and am attempting to use sweep controls for a select portion of the my model. Flow enters in the center disk, proceeds outwards through a number of channels, and then exits a pressure outlet (setup visible here: )

I am looking to create a swept mesh along the length of the channels, while maintaining resolution around the channel entrance and exit. I have had partial success by breaking the entire model into three sections (inner, channel, and outer) and using Mesh Methods for the swept channel.

Ultimately I'm looking to your expertise on more efficient ways of doing this. I've tried applying a Swept Mesh condition to the entire geometry, and it failed to mesh.

Thanks in advance,
