Hello Everyone,

I was using the refinement setting in ICEM to coarsen some blocks in my mesh (refinement -> level:1/3 -> Apply).

When I check my mesh info, the number of nodes and elements increases, but visually I can see that they decrease?

Why is this? What count is correct, ICEM or when I manually count them?
