Dear Foamers,

I have such a 3D complicated geometry in gambit software with tetrahedral mesh. I check mesh quality in gabit and maximun skewness there would be 0.95. When I import it to Openfoam with fluentMeshToFoam, and check the quality with checkMesh Max skewness would be about 1.5 and my case will diverge becasue of this poor quality.(My cases with good qualities (max skewness around 0.6) converged.)

How can I correct it?!
Can I import just the geometry from gambit and then mesh it in OpenFoam itself?!!!
