Is there an "esay" (comfortable) way to build a list of faces for the faceZones dictionary?

With the faceSet (or setSet) utility. Creates faceSets. Run setsToZones to convert to faceZones.

When I have tried to use the faceSet util but I need a faceSetDict file. But there is no example in the official distribution of OF. What I have to define in this dictionary?

What is the setSet util. It is from Paraview isn't it?

found it (utilities/mesh/manipulation/faceSet/faceSetDict)!

But I was wondering if there is a possiblity to select the faces of interest in a graphical way?

Take a look under applications/utilities/mesh/manipulation

You might have more luck if you compile against ncurses instead of trying to get a termcap working.

Allwmake and options

With the setSet you can interactively select the sets. If you've compiled it with readline, the command history will be saved under ".setSet", which you can then use as a basis for batch processing.

Is it possible to create a faceZone using the face definition e.g. "4(36 37 43 42)" instead of the faceLabel?

Or does anyone know how to build a faceZone out of a list of faces (copied from faces file)?

Any help is very welcome!

Write a little program using faceA == faceB to get the face labels of the faces you want.
