Hi friends. I generate quad mesh around 2D airfoil. I got some problem regarding "Smooth hexahedral Mesh-Orthogonal". After some settings When i click Apply it gives me some error i.e "can't read 'fixGeo': no such variable".
I tried a few times with different settings but this smoothing option is not working. Any one has any idea about this option. why it is showing me this error? Thanks in advance

I am facing the same exact issue when I try to smooth a simple 2D periodic channel grid. I am not an icemcfd expert, but here is a brief summary of what I did before encountering this issue:
  • Make necessary points and lines.
  • Defined parts out of the lines: inflow, outflow, top, bottom.
  • Made a block with 2D planar option.
  • Formed the mesh with pre-mesh params.
  • Computed the pre-mesh.
  • Converted the mesh to unstructured (right-click Blocking->Pre-Mesh->Convert to Unstruct Mesh).
  • Went to edit mesh and Smooth Hexahedral Mesh Orthogonal.
  • No matter what options I select, I get the error mentioned above.
Has anybody else encountered this. Does anybody know how to get around this?

Orthogonal mesh smoother is improved in V15. Before v15, I think orthogonal smoother for hexahederal meshes was recommended at all...
