sylv20 is on a distinguished road

I want to generate many "inlet" patches at the top of my geometry (as injectors) using topoSet (with boxToCell), each patch containing few cells.

My problem is I need a lot of inlet patch in my case (~50), is there a simple way to combine the 50 patches to 1 ?

Until now i use a topoSet file with many "boxToCell", then createPatch to transform the topoSet to patches, and finally I have a boundary file with many patches, which is unsuitable in the 0/ directory.

Thanks a lot

You can use the "createPatch" tool to merge all patches together to one.

Kind regards,
