thread569-374223: Design Modeler - Merging Two Bodies

ref earlier thread - gave me a clue!
Part A - creating the meshing regions
1. create sketch of the fluid, convert to a surface
2. create another smaller sketch where you want more mesh detail, and again, convert to a surface
3. Select the two "bodies", and under tools, you will now see an option "form new part"
4. If you have a sketch of an object you are modelling within the fluid, then use boolean to subtract it from the fluid

Part B - setting up the mesh
1. set up the default mesh size
2. In the region of interest, select mesh then mesh control>face sizing, and enter a smaller element size
3. Add meshcontrol>inflation if you want any boundary (edges) to have inflation control
4. Mesh!

Thanks again to the earlier threads
