I've meshed a box within a box using snappyHexMesh as a tester. However, it is failing to resolve the sharp edges and also doesn't grow any prism layers there. I've set resolveFeatureAngle to 10deg and there are a couple of refinement boxes around it.

Does anyone else have any good settings they can provide for meshing sharp corners?

HI,

I believe that current snappyHexMesh does not support feature lines. Some people on this forum had mentioned that the feature lines may be supported in the future, but, I am not sure when it will happen.

Thanks, Pei. That will explain the issue.
