Hello Foamers,

i am recently struggling with the mesh problems. I want to use toposetdict to generate a cathode, which is built with a cylinder and a cone . I have searched out the document in, from which I can only find how to generate cylinder using cylinderToCell. Now I wonder if a cone shaped geometry is also possible using toposet.Any hints from you will be welcome. Thanks in advance.

as far as I know that's currently not possible. I might be wrong though.

The required functionality (coneToCell) can be implemented based on the cylinderToCell cell source with little effort. The code is located at .../src/meshTools/sets/cellSources/cylinderToCell.

Hope that helps.

Another thought - It seems like something swak4foam could do, although I have never tried.

If I search for "swak4foam swakTopoSource", this thread comes up. Looks like it may send you in the right direction as far as using swak4foam in the topoSetDict file.
