hello all,

I encountered a problem when I'm trying to convert my 2D GAMBIT mesh file into a 3D Foam mesh by using the command fluentMeshToFoam. the problem is that after I did the conversion the mesh looks like skewed in someway because, the extruded front face mesh is not identical to the back face mesh which the front one is extruded from, so they are not totally overlapping with each other. I don't know what error may cause this problem, any ideas? I've attached the figures , please take a look.
Thanks

Wei
