I mean if these coordinates represent lines or smth else or just points on surface in random locations.

generally the question is is it possible to split model into blocks by splines, arks or just lines with coordinates at these points.

I find myself using this tool quite a bit. Can we get this put in a repo somewhere and maintained?

Kind regards,
Kevin

Great Post and great utility!

In some sections of my block mesh I want the start to be fine then become gradually more coarse by the mid point then become fine again at the end? The only way I can think this can be done is by splitting the original block in two. Is there any way this can be done with out having to split it?

Inspired by the original utility I implemented a calculator for the mesh grading and put it onto the Wiki: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Sc...ng_calculation.

It is a WebApp so no need to install it (browser is all you need). If you want to do so anyway or improve it you find the sources at https://bitbucket.org/bgschaid/blockmeshgradingweb

There are still some issues which are related to the Wiki-Software (Caching etc). Working on it.
