Biased Mesh

Hi,

Wanting to divide an element into 6 parts, How can I divide it so as to have the final portions 10% long of the original length of the element, while the two central ones (as in the photo) are 20% long?

If this is not possible, how can I divide the element into 4 parts, leaving the two ends equal to 15% of the length of the element? I saw that there is the mesh biased by division function but I didn't exactly understand how it works. Thanks

Hi Gianmarco, the bias or dual-bias edge seed, works like this: you choose a basic mesh size, and a bias factor, the the mesh size at the end will be (basic mesh size) * (bias). But it is only approximate and you cannot use it if you need a precise size. In this case you need to physically split the edge into multiple parts of the desired size.
