Run blockMesh, then covert the mesh with the foamToCGNS utility.

Primarily thanks for your answer

I tried making this procedure with the testcase present in the folder tutorial/basic/potentialfoam/cylinder.

I run the command "blockMesh" by terminal and then "foamToCGNS", but it gives me this error: "command not found".

Maybe the procedure i followed is not correct

Where do i make a mistake?

thanks

foamToCGNS is a user contributed addon - you will have to install it first:

You will need to spend some time and effort to get it to run with the official OpenFOAM release I think.
