Hello Fredric OpenFOAM has it
Hello Fredric
OpenFOAM has its own simple mesh generator, blockMesh, and a range of utilities of mesh manipulation, see: and

If you however find blockMesh a bit too timeconsuming to use (as myself), there are quite a few mesh converters included in OpenFoam, see:
There is one converter missing on the list: netgenNeutralToFoam
It is my impression that for those who don't have access to ay commercial mesher, Netgen(, tetgen( or Gmsh( is most used. Personally I only have experience with Netgen. The good thing about Netgen is that you can import *.step files from 3D CAD programs.
