type command


extrude mesh type keyword

Primary keywords:

mixed    unstructured

Specify the type of mesh. By default, 3- and 4-sided regular blocks use structured mesh; this command specifies if unstructured mesh should be used for such blocks.


Use structured mesh for 3- and 4-sided blocks and unstructured mesh for all other blocks. This is the default option.


Use unstructured mesh for all blocks. If this option is used and mesh mode (see extrude mesh mode) is set to quad, triangular blocks will be meshed with quadrilaterals only (amount of zones per perimeter should be even).
