Default OpenFOAM tests cases

Dear all,

I already installed different versions of Open FOAM and in all of them I was not able to explore too much the potencial of the code. I realized that even in the version that I installed recentelly (2.2.2) I can not work with the motorbike case, once the *.obj file is missing in triSurface folder.

I would like to know if it is related with installation issues, or if I am looking in wrong folder or something else...

Thank you very much for your help!

did you follow the installation instructions on under getting started to get the tutorials into the "run" folder? if not, do so and if you did it this way, navigate into the motorbike folder by typing

run && cd tutorials/mesh/snappyHexMesh/motorBike/
then execute
This should run the motorbike example and copy and run all the files in this case. you can then investigate the case and how it is run by looking into the file Allrun inside the folder. It will show you all the things that need to be executed in order to run this case.

Hi Roman,
Sorry for the delay replying you.
./All run, and now it is working.

Thanks a lot!
