Question Changing from Fill Bottle to Rinse Bottle

I have gotten the fill bottle Tutorial of Hassan Hemida to work well for my simulations of pouring lava into water or wet sediments.

Now I would like to turn the bottle over and inject magma into the "bottle". It should be fairly simple for me to invert the mesh but I keep getting an error when I use the blockMesh command. --> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
Trying to specify a boundary face 4(2 5 19 16) on the face on cell 1 which is either an internal face or already belongs to some other patch. This is face 0 of patch 0 named inlet.

I know it's probably something elementary but since I am just learning all of this I would greatly appreciate the help in getting the mesh right. I think I need to reorder the inlet and wall conditions but I am not sure how to go about it properly.

Thanks for your help!

I mapped the wrong face for the inlet. Changed the patch inlet to


patches
(
patch inlet
(
(13 12 26 27)
)

Now I still have another error
--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
Inconsistent number of faces between block pair 1 and 3

From function blockMesh::calcMergeInfo()
in file blockMesh/blockMeshMerge.C at line 217.

Maybe I can figure this thing out! Again any help is well appreciated

There was an error in my vertices. I finally found it after doing some checking and rechecking.

Here it is in case you want to fill a bottle. The mesh size needs to be changed but all in all it works.

Hi,

I am trying the Hameda tutorial u mentioned (water filling bottle) from long back. I am not getting reasonable results.

I used inlet velocity as 0.1 m/sec. I am attaching my FOAM files. Please kindly let me know what mistake I am doing.
