engg_student is on a distinguished road
On running snappyHexMesh, it shows the following error:
Point (0.0104634 0.00873237 0.704833) is not inside the mesh.
Bounding box of the mesh-0.0375 -0.0375 -0.001) (0.0375 0.0375 1.001)
I have followed the right-handed convention while making background mesh using blockMesh. I have attached my blockMesh and snappyHexMesh files.
I have tried different points but the error remains the same. Would really appreciate the help.
Thank You in advance

Too less information.

We cannot debug anything here. Can you provide the log file of snappyHexMesh or even better the case itself? This error is not a result of the locationInMesh point specified inside the snappyHexMeshDict. However, the blockMesh seems to be fine but there is something wired as the bounding box of your blockMesh is:

Checking geometry...
    Overall domain bounding box (-0.15 -0.15 -0.1) (0.15 0.15 1.1)
As we don't know when this error occurs, no support possible.
Please provide more information.
Keep foaming,
