Default exporting boundary conditions with pointwise -> openFoam

Hello all,

I created a geometry with pointwise and eported it to OpenFoam. But not all my boundary conditions are exported.
I explain:
the geometry is such that the x-y plane is meshed with an unstructured grid (here triangles) and I extruded in the z-direction which is thus structured.
So here my elementary cells are prisms.

Now my problem is that all the boundary conditions parallel to z (i.e. structured) are exported but NOT those in the x-y planes.

Can anyone help me out?

Thank you and best regards.

This is an issue with Pointwise version (16.04.R2). I figured this out a while ago and reported them to fix it. I guess they did it in the newer version. However, I am using the older one (16.03.R4) which does not have this bug.
