I've done the tutorial, and exported an openFOAM problem. But I notice that the blockmeshDict file is nowhere to be found. How do I get this file?

Hi Lawrence,

The "blockMeshDict" file is only needed when you have no other means to generate a mesh This is because blockMesh is (one of) the most basic meshers available in OpenFOAM.

If you look into the folder "constant/polyMesh", you should see several files that define your mesh! You can double check this by running:
from the command line.

Best regards,
