Hi Friends

I am doing a CFD simulation using Ansys Workbench and I have to do a structured meshing along the volume of Spheres which are assembled in a Hexagonal Packing arrangement's . So my number of nodes should be less and hence only for some depth of the sphere the meshing has to be done fine .and rest can be done as some concentric sphere meshes like say 2 or 3 elements.But in Workbench I am not able to do that,Can anyone help me.

The image shows my geometry ...since its having a point contact it has to be edited I guess to get a good meshing..
and the other 2 images shows how the mesh of sphere to be looks like which I am not able to do ....

Thanks in advance.
