Prism mesh error
1 Attachment(s)
Dear All,

I am trying to mesh attached geometry.

Geometry: I have two curved sections within 1mm gap and made perforations. Gaps between perforations and curved sections are closed by surfaces.

Problem: I can make the tetra mesh but when improving it by prism mesh it always stuck. I have selected "cone hole walls" for select parts for prism layers.

Can anybody help me to fix this problem?

Thank you.

More explanation:

My requirement is to create perforated cone. I used wall thickness as 1mm and therefore created two surfaces to define walls and grilled holes on there. Then I closed all holes by surfaces.

recently, i've been using a new approach, going back to designmodeler, and make just a sector of your geometry, 10 degree or something, go back to icem cfd. using hexa or tetra, mesh it, it will take less time either ways
