Hi,
I've got some troubles with the Stitch utility.
My case has several pairs of patches to joint. I 've got any problems with the first Stitch use, but the next delivers the following message:

--> FOAM FATAL ERROR : point, face or cell zone already exists

From function void addZones
(
const List<pointzone*>& pz,
const List<facezone*>& fz,
const List<cellzone*>& cz
)

Could somebody help me?

Miko.

Hi Miko,

I may have the same problem. Did you ever solve it?

I have attached a picture that shows the type of mesh that I would like to create in order to preserve the orthogonality of the elements.

I have tried it using gambit and looked for any way to do it with blockMesh and stitchMesh but I haven't been able to success. Does anybody have an idea?

Thank you all!!!

Roger

Dear Stephane,

No, I could solve this problem using foam utilities. After that, I also tried to stitch the meshes using gambit but neither there I was able to solve it, and finally I abandoned my intentions because I was out of time.

By the way, I also left a post (for gambit) and was answered with some short indications. It may be useful to you.

Finally, if you were to solve it, could you please upload it and post a comment with the instructions?



Roger

Hi Roger,

I am able to reproduce such a mesh (3 different blocks) with blockMeshDict.

So I do not use the stitchMesh command.

Hope it may help you a little bit.

Regards,

Stephane.
