Hi @eng.abass5,


I am not sure why you would get this. It seems like the mesher just got triggered off of something and ended up using a weird length scale or something. Just a heads up all elements outside the wall layers are tetrahedrals; these just look a little different for some reason. 


I would not worry about this. The elements are not poor enough in quality to cause issues with the results.
