mehrdad_kbg is on a distinguished road
Hi everybody,
I am trying to simulate a manifold using OpenFOAM. The geometry was created in CCM+ so I import the mesh to OpenFOAM. During the conversion I do not see any problem and the checkMesh shows fine. My problem is when I want to see my imported mesh in paraview instead of my real geometry the software shows some thing different. instead of cylinder it's a box and it was changed. Do you have any comment for this problem?
I appreciate if you help me.

Greetings mehrdad_kbg,

How many "polyMesh" folders does your case have?
find . -name polyMesh
I'm guessing you're seeing in ParaView only the mesh that might be in the "constant/polyMesh" folder, while also having a second one in "0/polyMesh" or "1/polyMesh".

Best regards,
