Hi Foamers,
I need to interpolate some volField from my cfd mesh to a 2D mesh for external calculations, so I need to interpolate in a cloud of points that I read from a file. I would like to do it in a code (no sample or probes), as the 2D mesh is quite big ( 300k nodes).
Which class can I use to interpolate in a list of points?
Thanks!

What I'd do (but I'm lazy and avoid "real" (==C++) programming if possible):
- Using the scripting language of your choice (Perl, Python, awk, ....) generate from the file of the 2D-Nodes a sampleDict (with a REAL long cloud entry)
- run sample
- Convert the result back to a format that is usable for you

Examples of using the interpolator-classes would be anything that has to do with lagrangian particles. For instance (maybe not the best example, but the one I found first):
Approx line 105 for creation: http://openfoam-extend.svn.sourcefor....C?view=markup
Approx line 161 for usage: http://openfoam-extend.svn.sourcefor....C?view=markup
Of course you'll have to find the appropriate cellI with findCell

Thank you, I will build the script soon.
