I'm trying to do a 2d simulation in OpenFOAM .
The geometry and meshing should be done in star ccm+ and then converted to OpenFOAM by ccm26ToFoam.
If i use 3d mesh in star ccm, then i cannot have just one cell in "Z" direction.Therefore it cannot be simulated 2d in OpenFOAM.

And if i convert the mesh in star ccm to 2d mesh, then it cannot be converted to OpenFOAM due to lack of any cell in "Z" direction.

I would appreciate if anyone has idea.

Thank you in advance.

Greetings omid88,

Export as 3D and then do the same trick as already done with meshes that are generated with snappyHexMesh:

Thank you for the reply.
Actually i solved the problem in another way,same as your suggestion.
I exported it in 2d format,and then used extrude2dMesh to make it acceptable for OpenFOAM.
