nathanricks is on a distinguished road

I'm wondering if it is possible to remove any relationship between edges on the pressure and suction side of an airfoil, if you are making a C-grid for example.

If you set up the blocking normally, you are constrained to have the same number of nodes on the edges defining the top and bottom profiles of the airfoil - even if you don't copy edge params to parallel surfaces, etc.

For example, I would like to have finer discretisation (more nodes) on the pressure side than the suction side - is this possible in ICEM?

Thanks in advance,
Kind Regards,
