When I try to execute the wrapper I get the error:

Wrapper::generateOctreeMesh: Largest Internal Volume does not exist. Try reducing the smallest relevant volume or reducing refinement sizes.

Can some explain to me in layman's terms what this means? Does it not recognize the volume as closed? I have a rectangular channel that represents a wind tunnel and then an inductor inside. I'm able to perform an extract volume to get an air region, so if there was a hole somewhere wouldn't I get an error with this? Why won't the wrapper work?

I think its having trouble picking where to start the seed for the volume mesh.... I recommend changing your "Volume of Interest Specification" to Seed Point for more specific control

Under Regions -> <Your Region> -> Mesh Conditions change the Volume of Interest Specfiication to Seed Point

Under Regions -> <Your Region> -> Mesh Values, right click Wrapper Seed Points and hit New Point

Put that point within where you want the volume mesh to be

I have the same problem at the moment. What could be the reason for that beside the already written suggestions!?

Thanks!
