Hello i am trying to mesh a tube with a vortex generator. I thought to use sweep near the inlet and the outlet and tetra patch conforming in the middle part near the vortex generator. But the inflation doesn't really work in the middle part any workarounds? Thank you

I assume you set a first layer height in the Inflation option. What happens if you use Smooth Transition?

You have very large element volume difference from the final inflation later and the volume mesh. Good practice is to have a volume change of less than 20%. Also, reduce the volume element size and see what that does.
