Hello,

I tried to export a hex/tet mesh from Salome to OF. With .unv the pyramids are not exported, so I tried to export as .med and import to gmsh. Then use gmshToFoam to export to OF. But I get this error:

Does your file specify any 3D elements (hex=5, prism=6, pyramid=7, tet=4)?
Perhaps you have not exported the 3D elements?

Is there any way to export a hex/tet mesh to OF? I also tried to export a pure tet mesh (which does work with .unv export) with gmsh and the same error occurs.

Hi Kruno,

I could not solve the problem. Actually, my solution was to use another meshing tool...
