Help with mesh
Could someone please tell me why my mesh is not uniformly on the blocks? I attached the blocking picture and how the mesh looks like... There seems to be something about the blocking strategy I have not understood....

In my opinion this is problem with association. You can show edge association by clicking LMB on edges in blocking in the tree and choosing show association.

thanks for your answer. Ive tried that, but the association seems fine to me...:confused:all the edges are associated to the curves underneath.

Did you checked the face association?
I would suggest you to attach the tin file and blk file, for a better understanding on your blocks.

This is the association problem. some times this problem is caused due to dissimilar shape of edges as compared to curves and edges try to project to adjacent curves and surfaces.

Attach tin and blocking files

And did you check face association? Try associate faces marked on picture.

thanks a lot for your answers, Iam not sure of how to check the face association.. quite new to Icem,...

I associated all the faces one by one, and it works now! Sorry for spamming, thanks for the answers!
