Default Hi all, I can't create prop
Posts: n/a
Hi all,

I can't create properly a case for a 3D flow in a pipe because of an error in the boundary specification.

Starting with a stl geometry, checked with surfaceCheck and converted into a .neu with netgen, I have followed the wiki NetgenNeutralToFoam - OpenFOAMWiki.

I am in trouble at stage 4, since FoamX return "Invalid boundary type name patch". I also tried to specify the patch thru the GUI but the operation is not possible.

Do I have to make it changing the script in polymesh/boundary or am I supposed to make it by another way?
