ICEM CFD create mesh for OpenFoam cyclic
 
i have a cylinder cut with angle 6 degrees. the both side boundaries SYM1, SYM2 are from wedge type right now. I want to combine and create cyclic patch from them.

but after running createPatch tool (with appropriate createPatchDict) Im getting the error message, like many in the forum. Many users say that
all faces should be linked correctly,( for ex. Reverse orientation switch in Gambit have to be ON), but HOW TO DO THIS IN ICEM CFD?

The Error im getting is:


- face 1504 area does not match neighbour 87306 by 7.1892% -- possible - -- face ordering problem.
- patch:SYM my area:5.21392e-08 neighbour area:4.85209e-08 matching - -- tolerance:1e-06
- Mesh face:430832 vertices:4((0.00871393 0.00582281 0.000305161) - ---- (0.00871391 0.00605422 0.000317289) (0.00848935 0.00614575 - - 0.000322086) (0.00848938 0.00591339 0.000309908))

Rerun with cyclic debug flag set for more information.
