Hi,

I have meshed a segment (30) of a tube with Icem. It looks like a piece of a cake.

Now I would like to have a mesh of 60 of the tube by mirroring my 30-mesh and merging it with the existing one.

Is there any simple and fast method to do so? Because of the mirroring the cells will fit perfectly together.
It doesn't even have to be in ICEM. Maybe already in Fluent?

I don't want to rebuild the whole mesh, because it is quite complex.

Thanks

In ICEM: In the "Edit Mesh" tab, click on the "Transform Mesh" icon, which has a "Mirror" option. Make sure that you select the "Copy" option, and that you select all the cells (including the volume elements, not just the surface ones). Afterwards, use "Merge Nodes>Merge Meshes" tool to join the two copies together (which will join the nodes at the interface) and export as normal.

While mirroring mesh, is it important to keep "merge nodes" option on?

If we do that, does it make the "merge mesh" step later un-necessary?

Thank you
