Hi,

I have just fineshed meshing a stator flow passage, and when checking the mesh it shows there is a volume orientation error in some cells. I used a cut plane to see the corresponding cells and i found out they looks like collapsed.
How can i fix this problem? is it possible to do it without modifing the blocking?

Thanks in advance

Yes it can be done. Run/fix block > fix inverted blocks or you can use traditional method: blocking > edit block > Change block I,J,K

some blocks/elements are collapsed? I just missed the point! May be you have some duplicate thin block! Can you show the blocking and those cell/blocks?
