Hello Foamers,

I am trying to generate a cylinder by 'revolving' my axisymmetric mesh through 360 degrees. I am using extrudeMesh and I get the following error:

Assuming full 360 degree axisymmetric case; stitching faces on patches frontAndBack_pos and frontAndBack_neg together ...

no points or no cells in mesh
point, face or cell zone already exists

From function void addZones
const List<pointZone*>&,
const List<faceZone*>&,
const List<cellZone*>&
in file meshes/polyMesh/polyMesh.C at line 987.

FOAM aborting

#0 Foam::error:rintStack(Foam::Ostream&) in "/opt/openfoam210/platforms/linuxGccDPOpt/lib/"
#1 Foam::error::abort() in "/opt/openfoam210/platforms/linuxGccDPOpt/lib/"
#2 Foam:olyMesh::addZones(Foam::List<Foam:ointZon e*> const&, Foam::List<Foam::faceZone*> const&, Foam::List<Foam::cellZone*> const&) in "/opt/openfoam210/platforms/linuxGccDPOpt/lib/"
in "/opt/openfoam210/platforms/linuxGccDPOpt/bin/extrudeMesh"
#4 __libc_start_main in "/lib/tls/i686/cmov/"
in "/opt/openfoam210/platforms/linuxGccDPOpt/bin/extrudeMesh"

I was wondering if someone could shed some light on the case setup, ie: extrudeMeshDict and wedge coefficients etc. I'm finding it difficult to gather information on this...

Kind Regards,
Thomas Loh
