Dear All,

I'm currently trying to implement a new boundary condition that requires some data from the sixDoFRigidBodyMotion library, in particular centreOfRotation(), v() and pi(). For various reasons (mostly pre- and postprocessing) I'm calling sixDoFRigidBodyMotion via the dynamicMeshDict for a patchGroup, NOT by the old sixDoFRigidBodyDisplacement BC. Unfortunately the movingWallVelocity BC does not provide the results I'm looking for, otherwise I wouldn't have to do this.
When accessing sixDoFRigidBodyMotion in the new BC the way it is done in sixDoFRigidBodyDisplacement the code is looking for individual state date for each patch that is clearly not present.

Does anyone have an idea?

Thank You,
