Opxah is on a distinguished road
I have created a 3 dimensional polyhedral mesh for openFoam. This was done using gmsh, gmshToFoam, and polyDualMesh.
Now I want to pick one of the faces of the cube and use this to create a two dimensional mesh. For openFoam this means two identical 2D meshes that are seperated in the 3rd dimension.
Is there an easy way to do this? (Or a hard way, if there is no easy way)
