ruby: No such file or directory -- discretizer.rb (LoadError)
my specification system :
OpenFOAM 1.5 and OpenFoam-1.5-dev
intel core 2 duo
somebody can help me , please?
having tested discretizer, I have noticed that the file discretizer.rb is no longer located in the $ROOT_PATH_FOR_DISCRETIZER/ directory but you can find it in the $ROOT_PATH_FOR_DISCRETIZER/lib directory.
I suggest you edit the $ROOT_PATH_FOR_DISCRETIZER/bin/discretizer file and
modiy the line 6 to :
Then, to launch discretizer :
Hope it helps !
Hi Jul D
the programmer of this software already give me some help, i.e:
$ cd lib
$ ruby discretizer.rb
but i still have problem regarding this software not stable on my screen (monitor), sometimes just hang without display the geometry.
please let me know, if you also get same problem.
have a nice weekend
indeed, discretizer often crashes without displaying the geometry when loading some of the examples. But I do not know why :(
give me your email address then i will forward another version of discretizer to you. this version i got directly from its programmer.
I tried to install the Discretizer in my home directory.
Unfortunately the installation script pointed to some different folders than contained by the tar-file.
I tried to change its content regarding the folder names (like 1.8.6-p110 etc.), but the tool is giving this error:
I can activate some rescue procedures to make Discretizer more tolerant when loading files. But then it is much harder to debug.
Also the file format is changed still. So if you do stuff with an older version of Discretizer and try to load it in a newer you will sometimes have problem.
Sometimes it is easy to fix a geometry file. I can try if you send me the file.
I try to freeze it, but still I added symmetry boundary condition yesterday.
And while I should stabilize the code there would be nice to have boundary layer...
My main goal is to make it a beta now.
Meanwhile I worked my way to install the discretizer.
Is there some kind of tutorial available, how things work with the software?
No tutorial yet
I want to do Discretizer "good enough" before I do a tutorial.
Meanwhile I managed to install it on my Kubuntu 9.04 system.
Unfortunately the window is blocking my system screen all the time.
If I minimize the windows the menu is vanishing, but the part of the window containing the 3D view if the mesh is always on top of all the other applications.
Any ideas what may be the problem?
Sounds like a problem with the window manager. Maybe you should turn of the desktop effects?
Settings -> Desktop
Disable "Enhanced Desktop"
Or something like that.
Your software is rapidly improving! Good work.
I just installed in on my system but it looks different than in your videos :-(
I was following you instruction for Ubuntu systems ...
What's wrong? Did I get the wrong version?
I used this command:
No files released yet.
The movie is Discretizer-Setup. From SVN you just get Discretizer currently.
I started to do Discretizer-Setup a couple of weeks ago. It's just going to setup OpenFOAM cases. The reason for this is that I think it is a bit boring to set up OpenFOAM cases via text files. Discretizer-Setup isn't ready for upload yet (but anyone can get a tar.gz if you drop a mail).
So I will rip out everyting dealing with boundary conditions from Discretizer in (not so distant) future and let Discretizer-Setup do that work.
In Discretizer-Setup I've been switching between icoFoam a simpleFoam with success, rest of solvers could be added without any problems.
Also I try to develop Discretizer-Setup with a good structure so I can have contributions in future.
looks like it's coming along nicely Björn! Looking forward to trying Discretizer-Setup.
do you know if it is it possible to open and mesh a STL file with the currently downloadable vesion of Discretizer?
Thank you very much for your answers!
No, it's not possible. Did you think of snappyHexMesh for volume mesh then?
The issue is that I have an internal/pipe flow, so I don't feel like using snappyhexmesh.
Then I think I will go for a try with gmsh and engrid, though I still have some trouble to solve by meshing .igs (autocad) files with gmsh.
Thank you for your quick relpy and your great work in developing this application!
I installed discretizer on Ubuntun 9.04.
discretizer_setup works fine, but discretizer has its window maximised to whole screen.
On another pc, discretizer can't show the drawing area correctly. It shows what on the screen before discretizer started. I created a piont and a cube and click the drawing area, I can seen the cube then. But when I release the mouse, the cube vanished and the drawing area back to its former display.
