Dear Foamers,

I'm kind of newbie on OpenFOAM and I got this incomprehensible problem which with i'm dealing with.

I have 4 stl files. One of this stl file is AirAmbiant (the air) and is surrounding all the other 3 stl files.
AirAmbiant is just a big hex which size is (50 470 160).

The problem is that i get this "region1" in zone "-1" (cf. the splitMeshRegions Log below) which is automatically created and i do not understand why ... because my blockmesh is exactly the size of my "AirAmbiant" stl file, so normally there should be no available space for the meshing to create this "region1" ?


I have tried several different meshing configuration but none has made this "region1" not to be generated...


Have you encountered this kind of issue or do you have any idea why it could occur ?

I have attached a screenshot of the generated "region 1" (in blue) which border is just inside blockmesh cells ... weird ?

Thank you very much for your help.

My blockmesh file, snappy file and splitMeshRegions log are below.

GuiMagyar is on a distinguished road
Still no solution ...


But If I move the locationInMesh to (5e-3 5e-3 5e-3) Then AirAmbiant and region 1 are now inversed cf attached screenshot... I really do not understand what is happening xD


No clue ? (
