Hi, all

I'm using the fluentMeshToFoam to extrude the 2D fluent mesh into 3D foam mesh. The aspect ratio is way too high for the boundary layer cells. I think the high aspect ratio comes from the Z dimension because when I check the 2D mesh in the gambit they are fine, but when I used the checkMesh after it's converted into 3D it reported the high ratio problem. I'm using 0.0001m for the thickness of first the boundary layer cell , but the thickness in the Z direction is 1.442m, which is automatically generated after fluentMeshToFoam. My question is how can I control the Z direction dimension when I'm converting the 2D mesh to a 3D?

Thank you
