Hi.
I am trying to simulate a propeller with pimpleDyMFoam solver with a new geometry and domain. but at running the snappyHexMesh command, after some warnings, the following error appears:

--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
Point (-0.105003 0.02607 0.06072) is not inside the mesh or on a face or edge.
Bounding box of the mesh-0.571 -0.3 -0.300002) (1.989 0.3 0.299998)
From function Foam::labelList Foam::refinementParameters::findCells(const Foam:olyMesh&) const
in file snappyHexMeshDriver/refinementParameters/refinementParameters.C at line 103.
FOAM exiting
as you can see, the point IS in the bounding box and it is not inside the mesh or on a face or edge(I gave it a random coordinate).
please help me out.
Wish you the best times.

Hi,

Check your blockMesh. In scenarios similar to the one you have indicated, it is usually the case that the blockMesh is defined inside out as a result of which the point you think should be within, is not within.

Cheers,
Antimony
