Hi all,

when meshing with snappy (a bit comlicated area - underhood ), the checkMesh reports the following errors:

<<Number of duplicate (not baffle) faces found: 22. This might indicate a problem.
<<Number of faces with non-consecutive shared points: 26. This might indicate a problem.
<<Writing 76 faces with non-standard edge connectivity to set edgeFaces
<<Writing 1 cells with two non-boundary faces to set twoInternalFacesCells

Number of regions: 1 (OK).

Checking patch topology for multiply connected surfaces...

I can't get rid of it no matter what snapping features, number of prism layers of quality settings I use. Does that mean the problem is in the underlying stl geometry?

I had a similar problem using snappyHexMesh and I was able to mitigate it by using the faceType baffle; condition and then using mergeOrSplitBaffles to properly separate the baffles, which snappy was apparently not able to do properly due to the highly complex geometry I'm using.
