The Thin/Surface feature allows you to convert solids into thin solids or surfaces. The feature can operate on both active and frozen bodies. Typically, you will select the faces to remove, and then specify a face offset that is greater than or equal to zero (>=0). You can make a model’s thickness in one of three directions of offset:
In this tutorial of a centrifugal pump you will find the basic setup using Ansys Fluent, we will use the pseudo timestep to accelerate the convergence
Source: ANSYS HELP Mesh Copy Control The Mesh Copy control enables you copy mesh from one body to another. This option can be used to reduce the mesh setup time for repetitive bodies/parts….

The Pinch feature lets you remove small features (such as short edges and narrow regions) at the mesh level in order to generate better quality elements around those features. The Pinch feature provides an alternative to Virtual Topology,
The Connect feature can be used after the Share Topology feature to selectively share faces between two bodies of a multibody part. You will need to specify a tolerance and ANSYS DesignModeler will connect two faces into one face if the faces lie within the specified tolerance.
The Extrude Mesh option allows you to create elements of one type from selected elements of a lower dimension along a defined direction. This option is generally used to create a volume mesh of non-varying cross-section from a 2D mesh profile.
