Dear foamers

I drew a mesh in Gridgen, which is attached below
file:///home/sujunwei/Desktop/004.png

After exporting it with Fluent 2D format, I used the fluentMeshToFoam to convert the mesh into the openfoam native format and used checkMesh to check if the mesh is ok.

But I got the following error
Create time

Create polyMesh for time = constant

Time = constant

The errors above indicates that high aspect ratio encountered. However, from the graph above we can find that it is not the truth.

In the conversion using fluentMeshToFoam, the mesh can be altered?

The mesh file is also attached

Have you encounter similar problems?
