Help!

I am struggling with a mesh in enGrid, and am hoping to find another opensource mesher that is a bit easier to use. Any recommendations?
At the current moment, I am stuck in a windows OS.. (and perhaps that is the root of a lot of my problems..

Hi M_RED,

I quite like gmsh for structured meshing. How are you expecting to run OpenFOAM on windows? Might it be quicker to just bite the bullet now and switch to a linux boot?

Cheers
