Hey aIl,

I got this error while running solution in Polyflow.
Anyone has any idea what this is about?


Summary of the simulation:


        The computation failed.

     * Expert tool diagnostics *

     An error has occured during slicing operation.

     * Expert tool Suggestions *

     This slicing error is probably due to one of the following reasons:

     1. the domain to slice is not sliceable (each slice, from inlet to

     outlet sections should have same cells/faces distribution). 2. there

     is an inconsistency between the inlet and outlet sections of the

     remeshing domain.  Please, check the inlet and oulet sections in the

     remeshing menu.

     If the problem persists, please, contact Ansys Polyflow support and

     send us, if possible the mesh, data and listing files.

     We apologize for the inconvenience.

The domain where the mesh will be modified must be sweepable.  So you should avoid tet mesh there and use either the sweep or the multizone method in ANSYS Meshing.

Best Regards,
