Joining Swept block with Structured blocks
Hello there,
I am using Icem to grid a compressor. Unfortunately I found a triangular face in the diffusor and I had to grid it using a swept block. However, I am not sure about which would be the best way to join it with the remaining structured blocks. Please, seee the picture below.
Thank you very much<a ...lxjbus4q34.jpg[/IMG]<a ...4q34_thumb.jpg[/IMG]

You can not join the square side of a mapped block to the source or target (in this case triangular) face of a swept block.

Even if the swept block had source and target faces with 4 corners, you could not join them.

You can add another swept block and continue the swept blocks out thru to the boundary of the blocking.

Or, instead of a swept block, you could have used a Yblock (really three mapped blocks in a "Y" or quarter ogrid configuration) and extended that out to the surface of the model...
