hi grandgo

Just go to the file where your case is located, and type paraFoam and switch off all the vol Field status and accept it.....


regards,

NAVEEN

Once you have the file open in paraFoam, you can check the box "Include Sets" on the panel and it will allow you to view the sets that the checkMesh utility may write if you have skewed faces or nonOrthofaces.

Hi farghaim,

I am new in OpenFOAM and I´m trying to convert a .msh from FLUENT to OpenFOAM. I´m using OF 1.7.1. I got the same error message you posted in May 2010. Did you find any solution to this problem?

I paste you my message in OF

Thank you Matthias for answering my message.

My mesh is a 2D bifurcation, that is why I am using fluentMeshToFoam. Does fluent3DMeshToFoam work better than fluentMeshToFoam? Do you know what can be the source of my errors? I don´t understand what they mean or how to solve them!

Thanks,

Marta.

I had the same error message as OP. The problem was that the mesh exported by Fluent was in binary format, not ASCII as is required by fluentMeshToFoam. To export as ASCII in ANSYS Meshing, do Tools > Options > Meshing > Export and you will see the option.
