I'm making a tetrahedral volume mesh around a wing profile.
However, on one side of the profile the prism layer is made of straight cells, on the other side of the profile they are crooked (zigzag).

How can it be solved?

Why would you be using inefficient tets anyway - get rid of them and use polys or hexas and I imagine that problem will disappear
