Hi,

I would like to delete the cells which reside inside of a geometry from my initial mesh. My cut-off geometry is an axis aligned box so the exact same thing can be achieved with setSet (delete boxToCell) but it would be nice to get this sorted out since insideCells supports a wide range of surface types.

blockMesh - brick domain, nothing special
initial obj file - box with pivot (0 0 0), side length 1
surfaceTransformPoints - scaling and positioning the geometry I want to delete from the mesh
insideCells - separating cells

the error message I get:
Code:
--> FOAM FATAL ERROR: 
Cannot find file "" in directory "polyMesh/sets" in times 0 down to constant

    From function Time::findInstance(const fileName&, const word&, const IOobject::readOption, const word&)
    in file db/Time/findInstance.C at line 140.

FOAM exiting
I checked my geometry and mesh in paraview, and everything seems to be fine.

Anyone with some experience on the issue? Thanks

Hi All,

I need help with this problem. When I run
Code:
refineMesh -dict
I got
Code:

    From function Time::findInstance(const fileName&, const word&, const IOobject::readOption, const word&)
