FYI: SwiftSnap now can also export on Blender to enGrid
For those who don't know, SwiftSnap - http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Contrib/SwiftSnap
- is a plug-in for Blender that helps to create "snappyHexMeshDict" files and geometry files for OpenFOAM's snappyHexMesh
Quoting Kalle, the author of this plug-in, here's the latest news:

Hence, you can now export to Engrid from just one Blender mesh object, where the individual patches are tracked in Blender using different materials, rather than having each patch as a separate object in Blender.
This might be handy when you want to give Engrid a try as an alternative to snappyHexMesh. The polyhedral feature seems interesting.
