Hallo everybody,
I am looking for a way to generate a 3d complex mesh starting from stl file, for chtMultiRegion OpenFOAM 1.7 solver.
sHM works well if I have only one stl file (also divided in many patches).
The problem is when I try to use chtMultiRegion, with more than one region and of complex geometry: it means not a simple box or a cylinder, but a scanned geometry of real objets.
No upgrade after this post:

So the multi region approach of snappyHexMesh can only work in block mesh like geometries…
Multi Region Meshing

Any idea or help to skip the problem. Or someone could suggest me another open-source tool working in such case, for example "Salome"?
Many thanks

Hello,
as partial solution: form OpenFOAM 2.0 it's possible generate multi domain meshes. However in chtMultiRegion solver you can't add layers , so ... for detailed mesh generation it could be better use different tools.
