Default Meshing thin surface in Ansys meshing

Hey all,

I have a pipe, and in this pipe there is a grid of thin surfaces going down it. In Designmodeler, I use a 'fill' on this pipe to get the fluid domain and I have the surface body of the thin grid.

I have my wall as a named selection/boundary condition, and the grid as a separate one. After meshing it in Ansys mesher and bringing it into Fluent, the thin surfaces are not there in the boundary condition list.

If I set the physics preference to mechanical in the mesher, then Fluent sees them, although I am not doing mechanical .

The only way I've managed to do thin surfaces in the past are through some slicing options, e.g. here I could keep slicing by various planes at different offsets to make a grid of fluid volumes, put a named selection on the internal faces, then it recognises it. This way seems tedious and somewhat eccentric however, and there must be an easier way.

Thank you for your help.

Solved. Spoke to Ansys, bug in the slightly older version I am using!
