Hi

Is there any rule regarding the order of the vertices in a blockMesh file.

I know that the first entry in the blockmesh file is vertex 0. how do you find 5 6 7 8 .......
I would appreciate your help?

Regards

The vertices are in the order you put them in the file.
The first vertex is 0. the next one is number 1 and so on. It's totally up to you.

The complicated part is the right declaration of the blocks and patches, because your local coordinate system is defined by the order of the vertices in the block (which isn't necessarily (0 1 2 ..7).

More info can be found here:
