Hello everybody,

I have the following issue:

- I want to hex mesh a volute. As it has difficult geometry I created the blocks a follows by hand: Via the edit Mesh tab --> Create Elements, I created manually hex elements (by choosing points) where the geometry is difficult. Then via File --> Blocking-->Create from Unstruct Mesh I got my blocks.

- When I now want to create a block via extrude Face in the blocking tab, the blocks have a different color then the ones from the manual approach and a strange mesh occurs at each interface of an extruded Faceblock.

Does anybody know where the problem is?

Thanks a lot for your help!

Hi Patrick,

seeing your latest thread, i assume you fixed this issue. So this answer might be for the next user to find:

The "problem" is that you can select for which part a new block is created. It is likely, that your fluid part is a different part than the part in which the extruded block is created.

You can avoid this by defining for which part new blocks will be created.
If you already have a mixed blocking, you just can use add to part to collect and move blocks in the wrong part into its designated part.

Best,
Sebastian
