    I’m trying to learn SimFlow using the free-version. But, facing the same error for all kinds of meshing approach. Always a box appears with red-cross saying “Error Creating Mesh”.

    So I decided to make a simple single-pipe geometry & tried to follow this tutorial -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixoVJMKKsqc. However, same error as below. I am attaching the settings’ I have used in screenshots.

    Hello Eshmaitra,

    You are using OpenFOAM 1806, simFlow 3.1 supports OpenFOAM up to 1612+ and 4.1.

    Kind regards
    Mike

    Hello Mike

    Thank you for such a fast reply. I will try to reinstall OpenFOAM.

    Regards
