I have two versions of a single geometry; one is meshed uniformly, the other is non-uniform. Both of these meshes pass the checkMesh. When I view the uniform mesh with paraView, it works just fine. However, when I view the non-uniform mesh, paraView crashes and gives this error:

Does anyone know what might cause this?

Hi!

I have a problem that gives me the same error message. It happens for a certain mesh when I start mdInitialise with one or more cyclic boundaries. If I set all boundaries to walls, it works.

Does anyone know what causes this error message?

Thank you!

I could solve my problem.
There were some unordered cyclics. I fixed that by using createPatch to build the cyclic boundaries.

Hi Marc,
I am also having the same problem, could you please explain.
what we need to do?
how can we create the createPatch?

Thanks,
Siva

Hi Siva!

The problem were unordered cyclic patches. That sometimes happens, when you create these patches directly in the blockmeshdict.
Instead you could try to build the mesh with normal patches (type patch). Afterwards you can use createPatch together with a createpatchdict to replace the patch types with cyclic patches and couple the cells correctly.
I hope that helps. Feel free to write me again.

Hi!
I have the same kind of problem, with the same error message ("More than six unsigned transforms detected"). But I do NOT have any cyclic patch !
My blockMeshDict has the types patch , symmetryPlane and wall only .
And my boundary conditions are types timeVaryingMappedFixedValue , inletOutlet , symmetryPlane and fixedValue .
I don't understand what I do wrong ? ! ? The problem occurs when I launch snappyHexMesh in parallel. Does anybody have a solution ?

Dear friends,
greetings

could any one find a clue for the error?

i import a simple 2D case, sketched in Gambit. with side walls as cyclic BC, i use createPatch and the case runs correctly, but paraView crushes immediately as i ask for volume fields

look forward to any helpful comment

and the error is as the same as for Smed's case
