Hi all,

I'm trying to generate an hybrid mesh around an ogive-cylinder in ICEM. The mesh features quad cells on the body (mapped) surfaces, an hexa inflation made by means of an O-grid around the body and a free tetra mesh in the rest of the surfaces and volume.

My question is: is there a way to update the sizing of the free surfaces without loosing the Edge Parameters setup on the edges of the structured blocks?

More in detail:

The procedure I followed is:
- Create a 3D Multiblock, without Mapped/Sweeped faces;
- Modify the automatically created free faces on the body to allow for conversion in mapped faces;
- Conversion of the body related faces in mapped faces;
- Setting of Mesh parameters in Global, Part and Surface Mesh Setup;
- Update Pre-Mesh Parameters trough Bloking>Pre-Mesh_Params>Update_Sizes, method Update All;
- Creation of O-grid around the body;
- Setup of Edge Parameters along the edges of the structured blocks;
- Generate Pre-Mesh.

The procedure works flawlessy and the result is good. But now I would like to update the sizing of the free surfaces without loosing the Edge Parameters setup. Does somebody know how to do it?
