Using workbench, I create my geometry using DM and am careful to put the corner of my rectangular geometry constrained at the origin. However, when I bring it into Fluent, my y dimensions don't start at the origin, but rather 3.636196e-37m. Beyond just not looking clean, does it matter? If so, how can i fix it? I have tried rebuilding it, but still get the same nonsense, just with slightly different values.

I appreciate any help you can give.

Cheers, Mark

It's very common and I wouldn't worry about it unless you actually encounter an error. It can be introduced at various stages, from the original mesh, to saving the mesh, to importing the mesh, or during conversion of the mesh scaling (from m into inches, etc).
