I am having a problem in generating volume meshing. I made 3d model in rhino and saved it as a .stl file. When I import the model in star ccm+ and try to generate the volume mesh, it gives an error saying "Exception: orientFaces: Sidedness had an error"
I can't figure out what to do about it, can anyone please help me in this regard?

1. Check your imported surface for errors
2. Check your mesh settings for reasonability
