Gooday all, pls am currently trying to mesh a car geometry i downloaded online, i changed the motorBike snappyhexMesh dict, by simply changing the motorBike.stl to R8.stl which is my own car geometry. on running snappyHexMesh on my terminal, the following errors were gotten.

Create mesh for time = 0
Read mesh in = 0.02 s
Overall mesh bounding box : (-5 -4 0) (15 4 8)
Relative tolerance : 1e-06
Absolute matching distance : 2.29783e-05

word::stripInvalid() called for word
For debug level (= 2) > 1 this is considered fatal
