One more suggestion is to run renumberMesh -overwrite after you export the mesh from Pointwise. I'm only an OpenFOAM rookie, but others have reported better convergence when they do this.

Hi Rick,

I have tried to open the file you posted on dropbox, but Pointwise gives me an error on the message window. Basically it says "Error: There was an error loading the file: The file is not in the proper format" I am using version Pointwise V16.04

do you know what can be wrong with the file?

Thanks,

James
