Greetings, dear colleagues!

Recently I started to use snappyHexMesh for meshing purposes (I used Salome before) and I'm new in it. There's a question that I failed to find answer in web.

Is it possible to make snappyHexMesh generate only hexahedrons?

I'd like to use adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) possibilities of OpenFOAM and as far as I understand standard AMR techniques in OpenFOAM work only on purely hexahedral meshes.

Best regards,
