Duplicate point found in cut face - stitchMesh - problem
Dear Foam-Community,

i am facing the following error, using stitchMesh:

"Duplicate point found in cut face. Error in the face cutting algorithm for global face 4(1199 ...)"

I generated a mesh, using blockMesh, consisting of three regions. Therefore duplicated points are necessary, to define those regions through different blocks (same with the accompanying patches). There are two meshes, i need to merge and stitch. To stitch them, I used the "createPatch"-tool, to form one inlet- and outlet-patch from three (caused by three regions).
Merging is fine, stitching produces the mentioned error.

Does anyone have an idea, how to solve this problem?

Hello Martin,

I have the same problem. Three regions and the error message of Duplicate points when I try to stitch the faces.
Did you find out how to solve it?
