Hello, OpenFoamers,

I was wondering, is it possible to generate a uniform prism (see the 2nd figure)?

Please take a look at the attached files.

First prism is created by blockmesh, in which the cells are obvious skew, and have large aspect ratio on top; especially when the number of cells is increasing.
Second prism with uniform cells is what i want.
