Hello,

I created a mesh with Avizo and then used Gmsh and enGrid to transform it to OpenFoam. When I try to run my case with this mesh it always fail but it works with other meshes. Therefore it is reasonable to assume that the problem is somewhere in the mesh

check Mesh writes Mesh OK, but I am concerned about nonMainfoldPoint and nonOrthoFaces which occur in my polyMesh folder. I cannot find any documentation regarding this topic so if somebody could tell me what to do or where to look for an answer


check Mesh gives output like
