ideasUnvToFoam / anaysToFoam Errors
 
All,
I'm trying to run the following conversion
ideasUnvToFoam 4bb_offset_20.unv and am receiving the following error:

cannot open file
file: /root/OpenFOAM/root-1.6/system/controlDict at line 0.
From function regIOobject::readStream()
in file db/regIOobject/regIOobjectRead.C at line 62.
FOAM exiting

I don't have a /root/OpenFOAM/root-1.6/system/controlDict path... is there a varaiable I'm missing?

Any suggestions are appreicated.

Hi

you need a /system/controlDict file like in the other OpenFOAM cases for the ideasUnvToFoam to work.

Create a new folder an just copy the system folder from one of the tutorial cases, put the unv in the folder you created and run the command again.

Regards
