Hello Mattia,

A Good Afternoon to you!

As of now, there is no utility within the standard OpenFOAM ecosystem which converts a mesh from the native OpenFOAM format to a GMSH compatible format.

A long time ago, I had written a utility which converts an OpenFOAM mesh to a format which can be imported into the meshing utility "Netgen".

Theoretically, you can convert an OpenFOAM mesh to Netgen, open it using Netgen, and convert it from Netgen to GMSH....

I am not sure if I will be able to find the utility I wrote, but if you are interested in this relatively longer route, let me know, and I could search for the utility.

Have a great weekend ahead!
