Hi friends,

I made a mesh that was converted from solidworks ".stl" by snappyhexmesh. The result mesh is not bad but in some points there is some unwanted meshes , how can fix it.

My guess is that these points are not really present in your mesh, but paraview introduces them for displaying purposes. Converting the mesh to VTK (foamToVTK) and displaying the VTK instead of the native OpenFOAM format might help with that, but I am not totally sure about that.
