Hi guys,

This is a 2D case.

This is my geo, lots of fins,

I made blocks like this, premesh is acceptable.

But I have problems to assiciate it to the curves, I tried "auto associate" in blocks panel, I also tried with "associate mesh with geometry" all does not work. Is there a quick way to deal with this?
