Hello folks,

I am trying to snap an object on top of the airfoil shape. The mesh was not created using blockMesh, instead I used the following codes to create my meshes:
plot3dToFoam -2D 0.1 -noBlank -noFunctionObjects n0012_113-33.p2dfmt
autoPatch 30 -overwrite
createPatch -overwrite
Then I try to snap my object on the airfoil shape, I keep failing in doing so. The error is as follows:
slurmstepd: error: Step 2361478.4294967294 hit memory limit at least once during execution. This may or may not result in some failure.
SHM file:
castellatedMesh true;
snap            true;
addLayers       false;

        type triSurfaceMesh;
        name VorGen;
	tolerance 2;

    maxLocalCells 300000;

    maxGlobalCells 50000000;

    minRefinementCells 0;

    maxLoadUnbalance 0.10;

    nCellsBetweenLevels 3;

		file "VorGen.eMesh";
		level 5;

            level (5 5);
                type wall;

    resolveFeatureAngle 30;


    locationInMesh (0.095 0.05 -0.05);

    allowFreeStandingZoneFaces true;


    nSmoothPatch 3;

    tolerance 2.0;

    nSolveIter 300;

    nRelaxIter 5;

        nFeatureSnapIter 10;

        implicitFeatureSnap true;

        explicitFeatureSnap false;

        multiRegionFeatureSnap false;

Thanks in advance!
