Hi Everyone.

I was wondering if anyone could help me with an issue that I've encountered in ICEM whilst blocking an aircraft geometry (it is an adaptation of the DLR-F6).

I've generated my blocks and subsequent O-grid blocks for the inflation layer. But when checking the pre-mesh after adding the constraints in, ICEM has automatically added links to each boundary from the wing tip and the fuselage LE and TE. This has obviously ruined my mesh. I was wondering if anyone could help me, I have under or over-constrained the blocking which has lead to ICEM automatically adding these to resolve the issue? I've included two images of how it looked before and after.

I've a good look around the forum and the user guide for the issue so apologies if this is a repeat of a question!

Many Thanks
