Refine Mesh

Use the Refine tool to split elements and optimize the mesh quality of parts and surfaces.

This tool is similar to the Edit → Split tool, however the selection in that case is very specific to element error. This tool works on a general selection.

  1. From the Discrete ribbon, click the Refine tool.
