Hello,

In the motorBike tutorial, after executing SnappyHexMesh and loading the mesh with paraFoam, there is a list of patches (motorBike_...). each patch is a part of the motorbike. this way you can select a part (patch) and visualize and extract its fields data.

I'm trying to do the same with my geometry.
I woud like to create groups containing small areas of my geometry so SnappyHexMesh can generate the corresponding patches.
I am working with "Rhinoceros", I tried to create groups and save my geometry as (.OBJ) but it didn't work.

so can someone help me resolve this issue.

Thank you.
