I think you can create a tetrahedral mesh with blockMesh.
When creating the blocks you have to use the keyword tet instead of the typical hex.

Look http://www.openfoam.com/docs/user/me...23-1320005.1.2 at the bottom for more options.

REgards!

Just changing hex into tet will not cut it. Is there an example that uses blockMesh to create a tetrahedral mesh?
