I ran snappyHexMesh and am now trying to run extrudeMesh. However, extrudeMesh can't seem to find any of my patches. Do I have some sort of syntax error or do I just not understand how extrudeMesh works?

extrudeMeshDict (excerpt)
Code:
/*--------------------------------*- C++ -*----------------------------------*\

| \\      /  F ield         | OpenFOAM: The Open Source CFD Toolbox           |

\*---------------------------------------------------------------------------*/
FoamFile
{
    version     2.0;
    format      ascii;
    class       dictionary;
    object      extrudeMeshDict;
}
// * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * //

// What to extrude:
//      patch   : from patch of another case ('sourceCase')
//      mesh    : as above but with original case included
//      surface : from externally read surface

//constructFrom mesh;
constructFrom patch;
//constructFrom surface;

// If construct from patch/mesh:
sourceCase ".";
sourcePatches (right);

Output:

Double check that your point in the snappyHexMeshDict is inside the volume generated by the extrudeMesh.That fixed it for mine.
