enGrid right tool for surface mesh -> cylinder?

I have a mesh surface (see attached image). Currently it is MeshLab so I can export this surface as an STL or PLY or etc. I'd like to get this surface into OpenFOAM, and am wondering if enGrid is the right tool for this?
Since OpenFOAM simulates closed systems, I presume I need to add walls and a ceiling to this surface so that it becomes, roughly, a cylinder, and then use that in OpenFOAM. From my research, it looks like enGrid was designed to do this.
But I have never actually used enGrid before and seek advice if this is the correct tool for this job.

Several days have gone by since you asked, so I have no clue if you've already have gone forward with any solution.
Either way, to answer your questions:
PS: on OpenFOAM's topic, I'll answer on your other thread: Converting a scanned surface to a mesh
