ideasUnvToFoam error
 
Hello

I am new to CFD and openFoam in general and having problems converting my mesh.

It is a fairly simple model of 2D flow around a cylinder, I have two cases one laminar and one turbulent however I get the same error with both when I run the command ideasUnvToFoam and get the following :

I have searched and found a similar problem being fixed with a patch but this didn't seem to work for me. Could anyone advise please?

Thanks
Matt

Silly error, I put in top_bottom twice...now fixed

Hi Matt. I have the same problem.

my geometry and mesh groups were created in salome-meca and seem to be ok. no duplicate faces or extra edges. when I use ideasUnvToFoam,terminal issues warning:

how did you manage to fix it? what do you mean by "put top_bottom" twice??

Did anybody find a way around it ?
I am only 4 different face groups and I am getting the same error ..
