Hi everyone,
I use openFoam 2.2.2 in combination with enGrid 1.4 an blender 2.62.
The addons for saving blender files as *.begc are allready installed.
Saving a geometrie as *.begc works without any problems. But when I try to import this file in enGrid only a message in the output window appears:

p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; } smallest edge length is 1e+99
secs. for IOOperation: 6
deleting Operation 0x2c62c40

There is no geometrie shown.

Try pressing "v" and deselecting the top, front, and right faces of your boundary. Engrid only shows you the "front" side of each triangle; the reverse side appears as background color even if there is geometry behind it. The "front" is the direction the normal vector points in blender.

If no geometry appears in the view menu, press "a" in Blender's object mode before exporting. The file size will give you an idea whether or not your blender/engrid export file contains any geometry.
