Hello openFoam developers!!!
 
Hello openFoam developers!!!

I am creating a simple GUI to easy the input of internal and boundary conditions for openFoam in GTK/VTK.

vtk is very simple to use, but incorporating the Foam data to it is driving me crazy.

To add a STL geometry, it is as simple as:

vtkSTLReader * reader = vtkSTLReader::New();
reader->SetFileName ("ship.stl"); //param: char * filename
reader->Update();
reader->GetOutput();

But not for vtkFoam. Does anyone know how to do that? The program is almost complete, I just want to visualize the mesh and show the boundary conditions, so some people not "familiar" with the command line can use it here.

Sincerely,

T.

Do *what*? What is your question?

You can visualize your mesh with paraFoam and set your input data with FoamX. No need to use the command line. Though I doubt that anybody who doesn't understand shell commands will have any success with OpenFoam

Well, I understand I can visualize the mesh with paraFoam, I do that. FoamX is anything but user friendly. I decided to make my own preFoam. So far so good, I just cant see the mesh. I noticed that there are vtkFoam libraries available and I would like to learn how to use them, if possible.
