Default ParaView Clipping Behaviour

Hello everyone,

I have been trying to generate background mesh with blockMesh and witnessing a weird behaviour of ParaView's Clipping.

When I clip choosing Z normal, if origin's Z value is 0 mesh does not look like it is made of cubes. When I change origin's Z value to something other than 0 mesh look OK.

Can someone tell me if the mesh has problems or the clipping is acting weirdly?

Look for the crinkle-cut button on clipping. AND report back.
BTW: this doesn't seem to have anything to do with meshing problems at all.

Also to properly view cells, untick "decompose polyhedra" in the .foam source.
Your mesh is perfectly fine. Actually, its perfect ... its just a block
