Hello,
I have a blockMeshDict with many blocks (hexs) in it. When specifying the patches, I have to include all faces of the blocks that are considered as inlet for example. This is very tedious and I want to specify just a plane so that all faces lying on that plane will be included as patch. x = 0 is inlet , x = 10 is outlet, y = 12 is top etc... Is it possible to do that ?

Greetings Daniel,

I think that what you are looking for is createPatch. To find more about it, see the files that appear when running this command:
Code:
find $WM_PROJECT_DIR -name "createPatchDict"
Best regards,
Bruno
