Hello dear all
My name is Alberto, i am quite new using OpenFoam
first let me tell you, i am so excited using this, is really powerful, fun plus is FREE.

So as i already told you i am quite new to openFoam, but mostly using solids4Foam. Look my problem relies here.

I am trying to perform a simulation of two materials lets say a polymer and some powder. My mesh is only a cube (polymer) and a rectangle (extruded) passes through the cube (from left side to the right side), the geometry for that is on blockMeshDict, therefore in order to create my cellZones the next line in the blockMeshDict must be set
hex (0 1 6 7 8 9 14 15) polyester (12 5 5) simpleGrading (1 1 1)
hex (1 2 5 6 9 10 13 14) wood (20 5 5) simpleGrading (1 1 1)
However, if i start all over and i decide to remove the second line, and perform the
with the topoSetDict, new cellZones are added to the cellZones created by the polyester. After that i applied the command
and the next error appears.
There are cells that are in more than one material cellZone!
i checked the cellZones file and some cells are in polyester part but also in wood part.

How can solve this situation?

thanks in advance
