Hi everyone,

I am getting an error when mapping fields and I am not sure why.... I am trying to map a field from a mesh to another version of the same mesh, that has some recent changes... However I recieve the error and I dont know how to proceed.

The distance between the centre of patch INT_BLADE_6-SIDE-1 and the transformed centre of patch INT_BLADE_6-SIDE-2 is 0.08105521.
This is greater than the match tolerance of 8.8291549e-06 for the patch.
Check that the patches are geometrically similar and that any transformations defined between them are correct
It might be possible to fix this problem by increasing the "matchTolerance" setting for this patch in the boundary

From function Foam::cyclicTransform::cyclicTransform(const Foam::word &, const Foam::Field<Foam::Vector<double>> &, const Foam::Field<Foam::Vector<double>> &, const Foam::cyclicTransform &, const Foam::word &, const Foam::Field<Foam::Vector<double>> &, const Foam::Field<Foam::Vector<double>> &, const Foam::cyclicTransform &, double)
in file meshes/polyMesh/polyPatches/constraint/cyclic/cyclicTransform.C at line 474.

FOAM exiting

Changing the match tolerance is not something I am willing to do, as this I believe is not the correct way to address the issue...

I am using OF9 version.

Any advice ?! Thanks!
