Hi all,
I am a newbie to OpenFOAM and Snappyhexmesh, I have read most of the threads regarding SHM in the forum, but I couldn't make out of that.
I wanted to create a semicircular cut in a square mesh. I made a '.stl file' in Autocad and placed it in the 'triSurface'. Tried to execute the blockmesh and shm, but I could see only the blockmesh generated square in paraview finally.
Can any one plesse suggest me the steps to work with SHM to make such a geometry. Am I doing some blunders?
Any hint will be a privilege .

Thanks in advance

Thanks a million "nimasam", for your response.
I got something now, even though there are some errors while modelling, I am getting the geometry now.
For sure I will search the web and will read more on that.
Thanks again for your effort.
