I'm attempting to simulate a rocket in supersonic flow, and I want to refine the mesh around the shock, expansion, and fins. I attempted to do this by creating revolved volumes for each in SolidWorks and setting the mesh element size in Fluent. However, I get this error when I attempt to initialize the simulation:

Info: Interface zones overlap for mesh interface contact_region_3.

Am I approaching this incorrectly? If so, what is the proper method to do this?
