Flow Simulation geometry check

Hi, I was wondering if there is an easy way for the system to highlight where invalid geometry exists after performing Flow Simulation - Tools - Check Geometry.

I have created an assembly file containing the assembly file of the aircraft along with a solid block enclosing the aircraft. I use the cavity feature to incrementally remove the solid components of the aircraft until the Boolean operation fails. Usually I can find coincident sharp edges or cylindrical faces just touching planar faces. Moving faces to overlap or create a slight gap normally resolves these issues. Is there a more efficient process to find invalid geometry?

Thanks,
Peter Ferreira
