Mesh Editing OpenFOAM?

Hi, I have an existing fine mesh which I want to make very coarse.
The mesh is not generated by me, so I have the mesh only as a plot3d file which I converted to openFOAM using plot3dToFoam....Hence no blockmeshDict file to change mesh density easily.
Any mesh utility in OpenFOAM to do this? Can anyone please point me towards any reference/tutorial for that? if not OpenFOAM what other software you suggest.
thank for your help very much....

I did see this thread the other day, and I saw just now your request on the other thread about "peturbU".
The short answer is, AFAIK: there is no such generic mesh application that "unrefines" meshes. At least not in OpenFOAM.
But there are some possibilities in OpenFOAM that can come close, depending on the mesh you've got:
edit: for future reference, the following threads are on the same subject:
