I'm getting the following fatal error when creating my volume mesh in Pointwise:

Has anyone ever encountered this error? It causes Pointwise to crash completely.

Obviously this is a bad thing. Which version of Pointwise are you using?

Can you share the PW file? If yes, please log a bug with support@pointwise.com

OK, I think we (my university) has contacted Pointwise and we have sent the file over. It doesn't really go through me from here. But if we manage to find a solution I'll make sure to post it here so anyone who will have this problem in the future will know how to troubleshoot it.

In the end the following went wrong:

Periodic boundary was created with periodic rotation. Match BC was set on both the original domain and the periodic domain. Match BC is already copied to the periodic domain automatically, Match BC should only be set on original domain. Not on any periodic copies.
