Meshing Controls: Mapped Mesh Controls

ANSYS Meshing technology allows specification of which face(s) onto which a mapped mesh can be forced. Options on how the face should be sub-mapped can be specified if the face is more than four-sided. Faces marked with a mapped mesh control that cannot be mapped will be meshed with a free mesh and the software will notify the user. All faces to be mapped meshed can be conveniently marked to try to force more orthogonal meshing. For solid parts being meshed with a tet mesh, the quads will be split into triangles.

Mapped mesh controls have advanced options to control how face is sub-mapped or broken into multiple mapped regions. Using side, corner or end controls, mesher can be forced to sub-map face as desired.
