Hello everybody,

I am trying to do meshing with snappyHexMesh. After some time of running this command, system stops executing giving me the error -

Overview X GM Terminal 
--> FOAM FATAL ERROR: (openfoam-2012) Did not determine new position for face 16564641 owner 4710458 neighbour -1 region -1 
This is usually caused by not specifying a patch for a boundary face. 
Switch on the polyTopoChange::debug flag to catch this error earlier. points (removed points marked with (1e+300 1e+300 1e+300)) 4((3.61303e-26 32.6333 1.002 32) (3.3462e-25 32.6411 1.00232) (-7.32146e-27 32.6411 1) (-7.86327e-28 32.6333 1))
