While compiling the ccm26ToFoam utility I got the following error:

* The license of the libccmio library is proprietary:
Users wishing to make use of its functionality should contact CD-Adapco
for possible download and terms of use.
Usage: AllwmakeLibccmio
* This script will install the libccmio library

Here the solution I found, hope can help somebody:

1) download the libccmio-2.6.1 library from the following website
https://svn.scorec.rpi.edu/wsvn/TSTT/Tools/iMeshIO/libccmio-2.6.1.tar.gz?op=log&rev=2353

2) uncompress libccmio-2.6.1.tar.gz and copy the libccmio-2.6.1 directory in
/your.OpenFOAMinstallation.path.../OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.2.x/

3)
AllwmakeLibccmio
Code:
cd /your.OpenFOAMinstallation.path.../OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.2.x/
./AllwmakeLibccmio


4) compile ccm26ToFoam
Code:
cd /your.OpenFOAMinstallation.path.../OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-2.2.x/applications/utilities/mesh/conversion/Optional
./Allwmake


5) copy your ccm file in the StarCCMTemplate.for.ccm directory (please file attached)

6) enter the directory where you have just copy the ccm file and launch the command

Code:
ccm26ToFoam nameFile.ccm
Attached Files
File Type: gz StarCCMTemplate.for.ccmTo26Foam.launch.tar.gz (1.1 KB, 452 views)

Greetings donQi,

Thanks for sharing! I've added the link to this thread to this wiki page: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/Ccm26ToFoam - feel free to edit the wiki page.

As for your post, please use the [CODE] markers for the example commands you've given, as explained in the second link of my signature

Best regards,

It's great that it seems to be much easier now to compile this lib. I tried to do it a few months ago and was not successful. Thanks in advance.


Now, I followed exactly what donQi outlined in the 1st post but I still can not do it. Here are my questions:
1. The untarred folder has no AllwmakeLibccmio script inside, actually it does not exist at all in the folder. So, am I missing something here?

2. It seems to me (and I am not an expert in compiling QT projects) that the downloaded file is a QT4 project. I tried opening the version.pro file in QT Creator in Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit, tried to configure the project but received two errors.

So, could you please either update the info in the first post or let me know how to run the AllwmakeLibccmio?

Thanks.


EDIT: The script in post #51 here:http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...tml#post429003
seems to have worked. ccm26ToFoam binary file was generated, used it to convert a 2D mesh (back step tutorial) I had exported from CCM+, the polymesh folder have been updated but....ParaFoam does not show the mesh as it encountered errors. Any ideas?

DELETED!

The script written by Bruno does work. I will post about my visualization issues in a new thread.

Following donQi's post I was able to make it down to the 3rd step. I downloaded the libccmio-2.6.1.tar.gz and I uncompressed the file. The AllwmakeLibccmio shell script did not run but the ccm26local shell script did. Both files must run in order for it to work correct? Why does the AllwmakeLibccmio not run when I try to execute it?

Hello Foamers,

I'm new to OpenFOAM and would like to use some meshes generated by STAR-CCM+. Unfortunately the required libccmio-2.6.1 library is no longer available from the website suggested by donQi, and CD-Adapco informed me that they no longer support the libbrary. Any suggestions where to find the required files?

Best regards

Hello,

I'm a beginner too but I have encountered with the same problem. I think this link worked:
http://portal.nersc.gov/svn/visit/tr...o-2.6.1.tar.gz

Sincerely

Quick questions:
  1. Which installation instructions did you follow for compiling "libccmio"?
  2. Which OpenFOAM version are your using?

Quick answer: Not much to work with here... My guess is that the mesh was not actually exported to the ".ccm" file, hence the message. If your ".ccm" file only has some 20000 bytes, than that's why. You must choose to export the meshed boundaries and internal mesh.

Thank you Emre. I was planning to place this in the third party folder as instructed and run wmake.


Do you have any specific instructions to run this one?

Just use the ThirdParty makeCCMIO and keep the default target type as it is (static library).
If this compilation works and installs correctly, return to the OpenFOAM directory and re-compile with these bits.
Specifically you can rerun the src/conversion/Allwmake script (or src/conversion/ccm//Allwmake) which compiles the OpenFOAM wrapper libraries.
Once these wrapper libraries are available, the applications/utilities/mesh/conversion/ccm/Allwmake should pick up on them and compile the conversion utilities.
