LVH_CFD is on a distinguished road

I am facing some issues with SnappyHexMesh, when I turn on snapping, these weird lines show up in the centre of the mesh. I have looked online but can't find that much.

Below you can find the snapControls I used:

nSmoothPatch 3;
tolerance 1.5;
nSolveIter 100;
nRelaxIter 5;
nFeatureSnapIter 10;
implicitFeatureSnap false;
explicitFeatureSnap true;
multiRegionFeatureSnap false;

Any help is more than welcome, thank you.

Hi Laurens,

This is a common question, have a look at the links pointed out there: Dynamic mesh using snappyHM
