Worst elements in blocking
5 Attachment(s)
I am doing blocking for a part as shown here. I am getting worst element at a particular area.

Kindly any one help me to correct my blocking strategy.

Worst element

It's hard to help with only pictures.
Maybe you could try to project the vertices to the points.

Or post you *.tin and *.blk here so we could have a look ;)

It seems that you have an edge association missing or wrong... I would go through and check all your curve to edge associations.

Hi guys thanks for your reply.

My curve and edges are properly associated. The problem is if you look at the 2d image there is a inclined curve joined to a straight horizontal curve( in 3d a taper surface is joined to a straight surface), after association I am getting a block which is of triangular shape and the mesh is worst there.

I want to know how to rectify this by splitting the block or I have to change the geometry.

Did you try the quarter of O-grid? This tool is very useful to capture triangular shape.
