stl geometry trouble
1 Attachment(s)
Hi everybody.
I'm testing snappyHexMesh - I used other meshing software - but I have a problem with the stl geometry. I obtain:

Shell ***.stl does not support testing for inside
Probably it is not closed.

What's the problem? How can I fix it? I attach my files.
Thanks for your attention.

simple problem:

the geometry is not closed you provided and so sHM can not define the inside for the refinement parameter. so you need to close the end of your geometry or change refinement to distance
