I would like to learn snappyHex mesh in openFOAM, but I dont know how to draw the surface of the car.I would more pleased if you could pass the tutorial of the procedure of STL surface (of 3D model) generating and how to insert it into openFOAM.

you can generate an STL file with CAD software like FreeCAD, BRL-CAD or Blender (modeller).
Meshlab could be used as a converter for many file-formats to a STL-file.
To understand SHM read A comprehensive tour of snappyHexMesh http://www.openfoamworkshop.org/2012...ningSlides.tgz
There is a new GUI-tool that supports you with snappy, it comes without a manual
If your STL-geometry has some featureedges you might also want to create an "eMesh-file" to get a better quality mesh
