mirror Mesh
 
Dear all

I am trying to mirror a mesh using the utility mirrorMesh. I have checked the mesh with paraview and it seems to be good but when I run checkMesh it gives me 4 errors:

***High aspect ratio cells found, Max aspect ratio: 2.28843e+194, number of cells 1732 (in the original the Max value was 598.682 )

***Number of non-orthogonality errors: 5206.

***Error in face pyramids: 10537 faces are incorrectly oriented.


***Max skewness = 5.73595, 37 highly skew faces detected which may impair the quality of the results

It is quite strange because, as I wrote before, it seems that everything is fine . I have attached the two checkMesh outputs

than you

best regards
Luca
