Hi guys!

I have a mesh created on Ansys, called "mesh.stl" ... a .stl format.
Well... How can I convert to OpenFoam format?

U can try to use Blender, read as .stl export as .unv and then use ideasUnvToFoam.

If this is just the surfaceMesh (as I suspect it us with STL format), you may need to do more to get it to work in OpenFOAM, like run it through snappyHexMesh.
