Hi everyone,

First off, thanks everyone here for helping me out with different tips and tricks on mesh generation. I think the the forums here are really great for amateur and professional meshers.

I have one more issue surfacing just after i thought i had everything figured out. The pyramids that connect the prisms ( in wake region) with the fluid region are the lowest quality members of my mesh ( see pic) and i want to improve their quality or get rid of them completely and replace with either tetras or prisms. I would appreciate if anyone could give me some suggestions.

Thanks in advance and good luck in whatever you are working with.
