Caution: The grid entities selected before entering the Build Refinement command are not used to form interior faces of the
block being created. They are, however, used to provide location and size field references for all of the Build Refinement block types.
After specifying the appropriate overset assembler, and selecting at least one domain or block, select Create, Build Refinement. A submenu (shown
below) is provided to choose from a list of all the available block types: Structured, Unstructured, and Voxel. This will be the
default block type applied when the Build Refinement panel opens.
The Build Refinement submenu is used to select the block type to be created upon opening the Build Refinement panel. As shown, the available options in the
panel will change depending on the currently selected block type.
Tip: Choose the desired option in the Build Refinement submenu (shown above) to have that block type applied when the Build
Refinement panel opens (shown below).
Use the Build Refinement functionality to create refinement blocks (Structured, Unstructured, or Voxel) based on existing grid entities.
Note: This command requires the selection of an overset assembler (Refer to
the Grid, Overset command and associated Attributes tab for more information) and
also the selection of at least one domain or block in order to become enabled.
