splitMesh error - point, face or cell zone already exists#0
 
Hello,

Yes, the faceZone exists since I've created one under /constant/polyMesh/sets/ to have a set of internal faces to make external.

splitMesh stops at; mesh.addZones(pz, fz, cz);

Should the faceZone/set be defined in another way? What's the difference between set and zone?
Any hints?
Thanks

Sorry, newbie mistake! After realizing the difference between zone and set I found the zones and deleted them. And now splitMesh works!
