A problem with blocks in Icem

I'm a beginner with Icem, im currently using it in my BSc thesis. I've come across a problem I can't solve. Please look at this image:

You see how the lines from block 1 bends down to fit into block 2? Like Block 2 is the master and the block 1 is the slave. I've adjusted the number of nodes to 4 in the premesh-params on the vertical edge of block 2(the one marked with edge in pic). But I want it to automatically adjust itself the block 1 instead, so block 1 becomes master and block 2 slave. Is there such a feature in Icem? Would appreciate it much if anyone could explain how I can accomplish this!

Best regards from Sweden

Hello Janne,

I cannot see your image (imageshack is not accessible here at work) but many problems I've encountered with ICEM Hexa are related to bad associations of edges/points. The first thing to do would be to check these.

I don't know if this helps but it's the best I can say without looking at your specific problem.
