Title
Question
hello every one, i ask you for a problem with the zip files downloaded, my command blockMesh work correctly, but it dont work, and show me this message

Usage: surfaceFeatureExtract [OPTIONS] <surface> <output set>
options:
-case <dir> specify alternate case directory, default i
-closeness <scalar>
span to look for surface closeness
-deleteBox <((x0 y0 z0)(x1 y1 z1))>
remove edges within specified bounding box
-featureProximity <scalar>
distance to look for close features
-includedAngle <degrees>
construct feature set from included angle [
-manifoldEdgesOnly
remove any non-manifold (open or more than
faces) edges
-minElem <int> remove features with fewer than the specifi
edges
-minLen <scalar> remove features shorter than the specified

-noFunctionObjects
do not execute functionObjects
-set <name> use existing feature set from file
-subsetBox <((x0 y0 z0)(x1 y1 z1))>
remove edges outside specified bounding box
-writeObj write extendedFeatureEdgeMesh obj files
-writeVTK write extendedFeatureEdgeMesh vtk files
-srcDoc display source code in browser
-doc display application documentation in browse
-help print the usage

extract and write surface features to file

Using: OpenFOAM-2.1 (see www.OpenFOAM.org)
Build: 2.1-88b2f2ae3a0b



--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
Wrong number of arguments, expected 2 found 0


FOAM exiting

Then the command "snappyHexMesh -overwrite" will not work as i hope

Please help me.

Answers:

This might be a problem arising because of version issues. I downloaded the Zip files and executed the steps on OpenFoam 4.1. surfaceFeatureExtract command is getting executed correctly.

I would suggest you to add arguments to the command, like
"surfaceFeatureExtract -includedAngle 100 constant/triSurface/flange.stl" (i.e. your .stl filepath)

Hope this helps.

Hi Mr Aashay thanks you, i downloaded the zip file too, but im using the OF 2.1 as in the tutorial video, but at this time the error differ from the past one, ill attach you it. Note the last line between this message and the last one.

thanks for help me, the last problem was solved using "surfaceFeatureExtract -includedAngle 150 -writeObj constant/triSurface/flange.stl flange_1" but i got a new error
