I tried to look up but didn't find any thread which deals with this issue. Perhaps it's something very silly!?

I'm getting this error when trying to run blockMesh for a very simple geometry.

Code:
--> FOAM FATAL ERROR: 
Parameter out of range, lambda = 1

    From function lineEdge::position(const scalar)
    in file curvedEdges/lineEdge.C at line 68.
Can anyone point me in the right direction? What is Lambda and what is wrong?

If it helps my dictionary is defined as follows:

Code:

I was trying to make a case similar to this (https://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/op...atchpairs.html) with some additional changes like grading and 2 inlets instead of 1.

This issue is resolved.

Apparently, graded meshing is not possible when dealing with multiple blocks. Such a pity!
