Import fluent mesh
 
Hi everybody

i would like to import to OpenFOAM a mesh i've got in Fluent. it was done under windows (i've used fromdos), then fluentMeshtoFoam but that doesn't work, this is the error message (and you can find the .msh here http://www.2shared.com/fadmin/148774...D10D3.dat.html).

Hi,

you have to run fluentMeshToFoam from inside an OpenFOAM-case with at least the system/controlDict file inside.

Stefan
