The ability to refine structural mesh without having to reattach everything


Right now, once I perform an analysis and I want to refine my mesh, I need to create a new mesh, assign it to the domain, and then reattach all the materials, loads, and boundary conditions. This can be tedious and error prone on large problems.

I would like to request the ability to add local refinements or convert from first order to second order mesh on the current mesh so I do not have to re-attach everything on every singe refinement.

Hi @cjquijano,
with the release of the new WB, this is now possible, as you can use the geometry as domain and attach any assignment directly to it!
