Recently, I tested Gmsh3, it iseems the boundary layer setup for 3D mesh has changed.
FacesList option is gon, It could be a bug in the future
Hello,

I tried meshing a tee junction with the 0.18.13554_x64 windows version and stumbled upon the FaceList error message as foreseen:

0.0: We are going to start ...
0.0: Start Gmsh ...
2.2: Gmsh had warnings ...
2.2: Error : 'c:\users\user\appdata\local\temp\shape2mesh.geo', line 12 : Unknown option 'FacesList' in field 1 of type 'BoundaryLayer' Error : 'c:\users\user\appdata\local\temp\shape2mesh.geo', line 13 : Unknown option 'hwall_t' in field 1 of type 'BoundaryLayer'
2.2: Gmsh done!

It's still producing a volume mesh, but no boundary layer. Do you know if there are any workarounds, like reverting to an older gmsh version?

Thanks,
Ect

CFD module now works with windows 10 v1803, since wsl output can passed back to caller process.
CFD git will be update soon, with platform installation guide.
