The mesh is not showing up when I go into the set up section of fluid flow fluent?

      The following message is displayed in the console

      Note: zone-surface: cannot create surface from sliding interface zone.

      Creating empty surface.

      I am not sure if this is a graphics card issue. I am using a Radeon Pro WX3100 graphics card which is set to be the default graphics card.

      It's a solver created boundary condition that's part of the non-conformal mesh you've created. It's for regions where the interface pair don't overlap. You can't display it, it's for the solver to use to store data.

      Okay, thanks for replying. That explains that message.
      I am just wondering about the mesh on the actual model. Should that display in the set-up section, as it currently won't show the meshing in this section? It does appear in the mesh section but when I go into set up it shows the model without mesh. I just thought it might be a graphics card issue but maybe I am wrong about that.

      When you open the solver there's a Display option, what are you seeing if you open that panel up? I think default is currently to display faces only, if you want to see all of the surface mesh too you also need to pick edges & all.
