What's wrong with "frontandback empty"?
 
Hi guys, when I import my gambit .neu file into OpenFOAM, I check the mesh is OK. However, after I change the frontandback into empty (2D mesh) and check the mesh again, I get error message as follow:

What's wrong with it? Could somebody help me out? Thanks a lot.
