Hello everyone ,

as the subject already states i get the error messsage as follows :

Input: idt_on_si_o2.lst
Surface idt_lower_cond_air.txt has 56 quads and 50 tris
Surface idt_upper_cond_air.txt has 59 quads and 28 tris
flip_normal: inconclusive test for normal flipping
Surface: dielectric.txt
Translation: (0 0 0)
Reference point: (0 0 1)
Panel corner: (0.5 0.5 -0.4)
Normal: (0 0 0)

I buillt FastCap2 from source (ht*ps:// for Linux.

So now i got 2 Questions:

1. What does this message want to tell me ?
2. How can i find out where the issue comes from ?

Please see ht*ps://w* (you need to replace the * in the link, they are inserted to protect from spam; you can also search with the "Search" link on the top right the words "inconclusive test for normal flipping")

Hi, i read the article but it does not provide additional information on where the error originally occurs.

Is it because a face is incorrectly defined ?
Is it a round off error ?
(I might have identified the exact line :

0.4999999701976776 6.833333492279053 -0.4000000059604645

I remesh my model with the Open Source Program Blender :ht*ps://w*

I perform so called insets, and subdivides. If i only subdivide my models faces everything works as expected (although i do not get a convergences but that's a different topic.)
