Hi all

I am a new user to OpenFoam. I am trying to simulate a building. I have a stl file in my constant/trisurface folder. I have a blockmesh in polymesh which I generated successfully. I them typed snappyHexMesh and everything is fine. Then I used paraFoam to view the building mesh. But I find that I can only see my blockMesh

I enclose my snappyhexmesh file with this message. Any help is much appreciated.

Snappy hex mesh exports the different phases of the meshing process into new time directories, so all you have to do is advance to the final time step to see your mesh. Alternatively, you can run snappy with the flat "-overWrite" so the mesh is exported in the constant/polyMesh directory instead.
