Is there a  way to control the mesh size at surface level or edge level without using refinement points.

For example take a cube and I would like to have one mesh size(say fine) on one face and a different mesh size(coarse) on other are aof interest lies on the fac with fine mesh.

That capability is in the newest version of Mechanical, which either released yesterday or tomorrow. (If tomorrow is the release date, then I cannot tell you due to government regulations that surface- and edge-based mesh refinement is in the software. You never know what feature may get pulled from the final product at the last second. :smileywink:)


P.S. The new versions are Mechanical 2013 and Multiphysics 2013. Autodesk always releases a new major version around this time.
