starccm to foam data conversion error
I am facing some issues while converting data from starccm to openfoam format.I went through the openfoam wiki page and tried the steps given there but still getting the same error. Is there a solution for this, I need a answer on a urgent basis.

Greetings RAUL,
That's... a very vague description :(
A few questions:
  • What error are you getting?
  • What exactly are you trying to do?
Best regards,

Hello Raul,


Instead of Star-ccm, why don't you try from Star-cd to openfoam?

I will advice you to save your case in star-cd format and then go for the conversion to openfoam.

As per my knowledge, mesh conversion from star-cd to openfoam is available.
