Hi I've been using the forums for a while now but this is my first post.

I'm tearing my hair out trying to get my snappyHexMesh to work but I'm getting the following persistent error:

--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
Point (4.13 4.91 9.95) is not inside the mesh or on a face or edge.
Bounding box of the mesh-30 -5 0) (5 5 10)

From function refinementParameters::findCells(const polyMesh&) const
in file autoHexMesh/autoHexMeshDriver/refinementParameters/refinementParameters.C at line 121.

FOAM exiting

I've tried a large range of co-ordinate sets for the point without success.

The simulation is for a supersonic landspeed mockup. What is frustrating is that I used a similar setup before, but on a much smaller scale, for a bullet and had no troubles at all.

Really need some help.

Thanks.

Jimmy.

Problem solved. The blockMesh was generating incorrectly.

You all must make sure that your blockMesh domain encloses your model entirely.
