hooman.4028 is on a distinguished road
Hi everyone,

I have been struggling with a problem for sometime now. I need to locally refine my mesh. To do this:

1) I define a cell zone for the region of interest (to be refined)
2) I use refineMesh

I have a mesh which is made of tets. I have realized that refinMesh does not work for any type of cells but hexs. Am I correct?

Would you suggest any other way of doing this?

Thanks for your help!
