Hi all,

I have a nice mesh made purely of hexahedra, I would like to be able to select a region and refine it using tetrahedra or polyhedra ? So far, in OF mesh utilities, I have only seen tools to split hexes 2x2x2 ...

Is that possible, if so how ?

Look at the picture in post #11 in this thread, it would look something like that but I would like to be able to select the area where I want tetrahedra of polyhedra..
