Strange meshes

Hi

 

I have a assembly with a very strange meshing result.

See the picture below.

There are two identical tubes at the front of the assembly. The left tube is meshed OK. The right one is a mess.

I'm meshing the tubes using solid meshing of type Bricks and Wedges (Layered mesh of thin parts).

 

When I use the Midplane meshing, the right tubes almost disappears. See picture below

The tubes are identical (extruded from one sketch in Inventor). Any idea what could be wrong??

 

Please use plain text.

Found the problem.

Somebody told me the problem could be that I extrude both tunes into one part.

When I make two separate parts for the two tubes, all is ok.
