Hello Everyone,

I am using topoSet to make cellSet.

For that, I am making faceSet and then from that faceSet I am making cellSet.

My topoSetDict is given below:
        name    hot1;
        type    faceSet;
        action  new;
        source  patchToFace;
            name "hotFace";



        name    hotcell;
        type    cellSet;
        action  new;
        source  faceToCell;
            set hot1;      // Name of faceZone, regular expressions allowed
            option any;      // master/slave

when I run "topoSet", it seems that my faceSet is generated without problems, but my cellSet has some problems.

Below are the images of my faceSet and cellSet in a geometry:

I don't know why the cellSet is like this?

I want to generate a heat source on the red face in the geometry using fvOptions.

Thank you

Have you figured out the solution to it? If yes, please share.

splitMeshRegion -Options
What options are you using? Have you tried changing those options?

The second picture may indicate that there are cells that have a face that is part of "hotface" but that were not selected as part of "hotcell". But that is not necessarily the case. It could well be that there are grey cells that only share a corner edge with "hotface". Maybe there is no error at all?
