Hi to all
I've made a simple case (cube) using GMSH, so when I use gmshToFoam to convert it I've this :

I'm doing somethings of wrong?

Not necessarily wrong. What t
 
Not necessarily wrong. What this says is that OpenFOAM has found 824 faces external to your geometry that did not have a boundary condition associated with them and it has collected them together in a patch.

If you think you have defined boundary types on the complete external surface of the model, there is a reason to worry; otherwise, just have a look at the default patch and see if it looks OK or not.

Enjoy,
