Hi everybody!

I'm trying to mesh a flat plate into an autoclave. For symmetry, I only take a semicylinder for the autoclave and the half of the flat plate. I've been reading other threads about multi region mesh with snappy and the tutorial of snappyMultiRegionHeater but I could not solve my problem.

My problem is :
I have two stl, one for the autoclave and another for the flat plate (in each one is defined each surface, it is, inflow, outflow...)
When I do snappyHexMesh, it mesh everything, it is, the autoclave, the flat plate and the block I defined in blockMeshDict.
When I do splitMeshRegions -cellZones -overwrite, it doesn't split the region autoclave. It split the flat plate, and region0 that is the rest of the block defined in the blockMeshDict, but with the autoclave meshing inside it.

If someone could help me, I would be grateful.

Thanks, Victor
