Hi i'm Sujith,

I was trying to mesh an STL surface which has open ends(non watertight) using snappyHexMesh. And i found that it is not removing the unwanted parts of blockmesh. i have located the mesh point exactly inside the surface.

Please help me..

see the attachment of geometry.

I think you should ensure `water-tightness` of your surface mesh to enable snappy acting properly.
Kind regards,
