Hi everybody,

I'm trying to import a 2d naca profile written in Plot3d but I get the following error:

Exec : plot3dToFoam /home/dino/OpenFOAM/dino-1.4.1/run/tutorials/potentialFoam/ nacaPotential

--> FOAM FATAL IO ERROR : Attempt to get back from bad stream

file: at line 5.

From function void Istream::getBack(token& t)
in file db/IOstreams/IOstreams/Istream.C at line 44.

FOAM exiting

I don't know if this utilities needs a 3d mesh to convert, but if I remember correctly openfoam automatically introduce a third dimension.
Thank you in advance for any support.
