pointZone to cellZone
 
Hi Foamers,

how can I get from a pointZone a cellZone?

cheers Peter

Hi Peter,

I think you can use the setSet utility to do what you want.

Something like this:

start setSet in your case:
Code:

setSet
create a pointSet from your pointZone:
Code:

pointSet p0 new zoneToPoint yourPointZoneName
create a cellSet from the pointSet
Code:

cellSet c0 new pointToCell p0
quit setSet
Code:

quit
then create a cellZone from the cellSet:
Code:

setsToZones -noFlipMap
Now you will have a cellZone called c0 which contains the points from your pointZone yourPointZoneName.

I might have made a few mistakes with the syntax but it should do what you want with a bit of fiddling.

Best regards,
Philip

This works fine for a pointSet, which is in ./polyMesh/sets/.

In my case I have a pointZone in ./polyMesh and I like to have a cellZone out of it.

Hi Peter,

The above method should work fine to create a pointZone from a cellZone. As I explained above, you must create a pointSet from your pointZone, then create a cellSet from your pointSet, then create a cellZone from the cellSet
i.e.
pointZone -> pointSet -> cellSet -> cellZone

Sorry it was my fault!
It works :) I will try to adapt it within my mesh class.
Thank you very much!!
