Hi everybody,
I want to convert .stl (test.stl) file to openFoam. First, I used tetgen to convert .stl file to (.ele, .face, .node and .smesh) with the common order:
./tetgen test.stl

And then, I used the following command to convert tetgen files (test.1.ele, test.1.node, test.1.face and test.1.smesh) to Foam:

tetgenToFoam test.1

But, and I have the following error:

any idea?
Actually, I used an example in the tutorial and I just replaced blockMeshDict file in polyMesh folder with test.stl file (wich has a different geometry). I just wanted to check the mesh conversion (from .stl to openFoam). Should I change any other files in channel395 folder?
Thanks
