Hi All,

I am fairly new to openFoam and had a general question. I'm not sure if this is the right forum, but I figured it was as good as any.

I have gone through the tutuorials in the user's guide, but would like to start my own simulation. However, I am not sure how to actually start a fresh model. Would I have to copy the files (0, System, and Constant) from another file? If not, is there a standard template to begin from?

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

I would indeed just copy it from a case that is similar to your desired setup.
