Default meshing of non equilateral hexahedron

For my Fluent simulation I need a mesh with cubic elements. Using the cut cell method a mesh was established and manipulated with the adapt function in Fluent (figure).

- If possible I would like to coursen the hexahedron in one direction (but the other two should stay as they are). Make a isometric cube to a cuboid.

Does anyone know if this is possible in the Ansys Meshing Function? I reogniced nothing about this in the Users Guide.

Hi mate,
I'm no familiar with Ansys meshing. But I don't think with Cut cell or Hexa core methods you can get what you want.
The possible way is likely to be Cartesian method, which is implemented in ICEM.
