When I'll try to export an 2D Mesh CAE to OpenFoam I get the following error:
The grid has inconsistent normals
I have already checkt that I have no non-manifold connecters and just dont know, where the problem could be
Im working with Pointwise V18.3

The Pointwise File is here, if it is relevant

Thank you very much!

The error message is correct.

When exporting a 2D grid with multiple domains, you must make sure the domains all have the same orientation.

Select the domains and use the Edit, Orient... tool to fix this issue.
