I am able to use ideasUnvToFoam with ease to convert meshes I have created using Salome into OpenFOAM format. There is only one problem: when I look at the points file that gets created in the polyMesh folder, I find that it is writing coordinates with a maximum of 5 decimal places. Is there a way to increase this precision?

Quick answer: In your case folder, "system/controlDict" -> "writePrecision" - or in "writeFormat" use "binary" format for full precision... although it's binary.

Thank you very much for the quick reply. It worked! For some reason I did not associate the controlDict with the mesh converters. I thought it was just for the solver to write the field variables. Thank you again!!
