Hi, I'm working on directed mesh in my project in starccm+. Surface meshes are fine, volume mesh generates between choosen surfaces, and quality of cells is acceptable. But when I'm checking random crossection of my model the surface that is generated looks poorly and I do not understand why it happens since directed mesh creates the same surface every other propagation step. Do you have any idea what is going on? Here are some screenshots of my problem.

Can this be just a visualization artifact? I'd try using a Cell Surface derived part instead of a regular Section Plane and see if the cells still look strange. You can also consult this Knowledge Base article, if you have access to the Support Portal:

Yepp, that was definitely just a visualization issue. Cell Surface derived part shows that everything is good throughout my mesh. Thank you for your help!
