Question blockMeshDict : boundary -> set faces ?

Hi everyone,

In Blender, I used SwiftSnap and set inlet,outlet, wall and default geometries.
But when I generate the files out of this I get a blockMeshDict WITHOUT boundaries.
I can't guess which are the faces of my boundaries, as my STL is quite complex.
Is there an add-on that does the work automatically in blender ?

Any link would be appreciated as I didn't find any documentation
on how to set up these faces in blockMeshDict. Thanks in advance.

Solved last year.

swiftBlock / swiftSnap GUIs can automatically generate blockMeshDict and snappyHexMeshDict files.
