Take a mesh (e.g. lid-driven cavity tutorial) and run polyDualMesh. It will write a new mesh in a time directory (0.0005?). Move this polyMesh directory to the constant directory.

It will run on any OpenFOAM mesh. Quite funny on tet meshes.

thank you!
thank you!

And the name of this time directory is decided by "deltaT" in controlDict.
If we set deltaT=100,it will write new mesh to (case)/100/polymesh .
