I'm Gridgen v15.18 user.
When I was using Gridgen, I was find weird bug.
I made some face(Domain) and translate it.
traslate it by delta x = 100000
But, the Face is collapsing like Fig.1.
How can I deal with this problem?
Thank you.

It's virtually impossible to tell from the image what the problem is. I'm not even certain what part of the image represents the face "collapsing."

I'll take a guess based on what you wrote about translating the grid by 100,000. If the grid is "small" and you translate it a large distance like 100,000 you may be pushing the bounds of double precision. It all depends on the overall coordinate extents of your grid, the smallest grid spacing, whether the domain is constrained to the database, etc.
