timotie87 is on a distinguished road
I am trying to set up a rotational periodic mesh in ICEM. I have a simple half cylinder domain, and would like to set up the mesh so that faces A1 and A2 are conforming, similar with B1 and B2. I have done these steps:

1. Global Mesh Setup > Set up Periodicity
2. Rotational Periodic
3. Base: 0 0 0, Axis 0 0 1, Sectors 2 (for 180 degree)

I am making a unstructured mesh, using the Quick (Delaunay), but the resulting mesh does not produce conforming meshes on these surfaces. Any suggestions?
