features' edges with surfaceFeatureExtract
I'm trying to enhance my mesh using the surfaceFeatureExtract tool, but I can't find a proper guide/tutorial.
I tried to use $FOAM_TUTORIALS/incompressible/pimpleDyMFoam/propeller/Allrun.pre as a guide, but I'm still having some troubles.
I managed to run surfaceFeatureExtract correctly with this command:
But then what should i do with these files?
I tried to use the .eMesh files as input for snappyHexMesh in place of the .stl, but i receive the error
Moreover in my simulation i need to have different patches for the faces of the B0 volume (it's a box-shape volume). Before using surfaceFeatureExtract I had 5 different .stl for each face that were given to snappyHex as different surfaces. This way i had five different patches.
Now, if i try to use the same five files with surfaceFeatureExtract I receive the error
Thank you very much for the help.
PS: I use OF v2.1, since i saw that the surfaceFeatureExtract has slightly changed from 2.1 to 2.2
Ok, I looked for a solution for hours and then i found it few minutes after i decided to post here.
Anyway, i write the solution just for a future reference.
A) You can find a quite detailed description of how to use the .eMesh file here https://www.hpc.ntnu.no/display/hpc/...eometryandmesh
B) Yes, just use the joined geometry as input for surfaceFeatureExtract and then use the separated faces for snappyHexMesh. The .eMesh files don't have to be generated using exactly the same .stl files you will give to snappyHex
Sorry for the post. Bye!
