Persistent problem with locationInMesh in for snappy
Hi I've been using the forums for a while now but this is my first post.

I'm tearing my hair out trying to get my snappyHexMesh to work but I'm getting the following persistent error:

Point (4.13 4.91 9.95) is not inside the mesh or on a face or edge.
Bounding box of the mesh:(-30 -5 0) (5 5 10)

From function refinementParameters::findCells(const polyMesh&) const
in file autoHexMesh/autoHexMeshDriver/refinementParameters/refinementParameters.C at line 121.

FOAM exiting

I've tried a large range of co-ordinate sets for the point without success.

The simulation is for a supersonic landspeed mockup. What is frustrating is that I used a similar setup before, but on a much smaller scale, for a bullet and had no troubles at all.

Really need some help.

Problem solved. The blockMesh was generating incorrectly.

May I know whats the problem with your blockMEsh?
I have been having the same problem for my external aerodynamic model

You all must make sure that your blockMesh domain encloses your model entirely.
