How do I create a hybrid mesh?

Dear colleagues,

I would like to create a hybrid mesh as shown in the figure below, but I am stuck with creating its geometry.

First, I built the smaller box (Add Material) and Cut the person out from the smaller box. Further, the smaller box was frozen and the bigger box was extruded (Add Frozen). Then the boxes were separated with Boolean (Preserve bodiese - YES). Two boxes are the same fluid - air.

I am not sure if my approach is correct, please correct me if I am wrong.


  • Hello,

    The basic idea is to create regular boxes so that you can create a sweepable mesh in these regions. The middle region is something which you will mesh using a tetrahedral mesh.

    Please mesh the sweepable parts first and then attempt to mesh the middle region.

    Thank you.

    Best Regards,
