Curved Geometry Approximation

These options control how curved geometry is approximated when creating the mesh.

Refinement factor
This option controls how fast the mesh will refine when it determines that the mesh does not adequately conform to the model. Fine allows smaller triangles to be used for small details but will increase the time to mesh the model.
Minimum element size
This option limits the size of the small triangles that are used to conform to the geometry, relative to the requested mesh size on that part.
Allow elongated triangles
This option allows the use of long, thin triangles and can lead to a reduction in the number of mesh elements (depending on the geometry that is meshed).
