Hi all,

I want to represent a spiral geometry, but for some reason ICEM doesn't (see attachment). Does anybody know where to set this tolerance?

Thanks in advance,

Try "Settings->Model->Topo Tolerance" and Triangulation Tolerance. At least for hexa meshes that worked for me...

this should not happen. look at how your sufaces looks , check the surface in the outline tree, disable wireframe mode
