Greetings to all!
@Devanson: the Discretizer package has two GUI applications:
- Discretizer: dedicated for drawing the geometry and meshing it using Discretizer's meshing techniques.
- Discretizer::Setup or Discretizer-Setup: dedicated to pre-processing and running cases. I'm not sure what are the current limitations, but last time I checked, it still wasn't fully operational.
and watch the various screen casts available there, to get a better notion of what you can do with it.
As for other GUI's for OpenFOAM, you better search this forum for the keywords "GUI OpenFOAM" and also "Discretizer" for more about it. There are a few other GUI's out there, some paid, some free, but I don't know if there is any that can fully explore OpenFOAM's capabilities.
So sooner or later, you'll need to go down
to the terminal and use your favourite text editor (not
word processor) to modify and run your cases. This is why many of the replies where "text editor" related ;).
edit: I didn't know about this, but there is already a compiled list at openfoamwiki.net: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/GUI
