Dear All, I am a beginner in ICEMCFD and I found I discovered something wrong when I define blocks. Actually what happens is that the wire-frame and solid view of the blocks created does not correspond each other as shown in the attached files. Do you have an idea what is wrong with my model? Many thanks in advance

Normally, I would just say "don't worry about it", but your blocking does look strange.

I am guessing you didn't create these with top down splits... How did you create these? Are they con formal?
