Hell Foamers,

According to , OF V2.2.0 and later version should be able to do the feature edge snapping as presented in the official webpage.

However, in my case, snappyHexMesh doesn't snap feature edge. Take a look at the small circular hole, please. The red lines are the eMesh file containing feature edges. I don't know why it doesn't give the same behaviour as OF official webpage says.

Any comments are welcome.

Artur will become famous soon enough

It may be just me but your mesh seems undeformed at all. Are you sure that snapping was executed properly for your case?
