I know that Paraview is used for viewing a mesh once blockMesh creates one from the blockMeshDict file but seeing a grid and understand the relationship between the indices used to connect the vertices are two different things. Is there some easy way to visualize the indices without making crude drawings by hand in GIMP or some other image editor.

thanks

Quick answer:


edit: There is at least one of two more possibilities, but I can't remember their names...

Greetings to all!

@Roman: Many thanks for reminding me of HexBlocker!

I've taken the time to revamp the wiki page for blockMesh: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/BlockMesh - if you remember any more helpful features and hints about blockMesh, feel free to add it to that wiki page!

Best regards,
Bruno

PyFoamDisplayBlockMesh can display everything defined in blockMeshDict even when meshing fails due to some errors.
