Hi everyones,

I'm a new user on OpenFoam and i encounter some difficulties to define my geometry on engineFoam. I would like to fix only one valve and suppress the piston.

So i add in the engineGeometry informations relative on valve and piston. but when i'm looking the results with Paraview i obtain the same geometry than the kivaTest tutoriel(4 valves,piston).

Is it others folders to modify except engineGeometry?

Thanks a lot

If you want to change the geometry you should import a mesh in openfoam from other software Or you should create the mesh in openfoam { by using blockMesh Or Snappyhexmesh }
engineGeometry is a dictionary for solver . It's not related to preprocessing .

Hope this helps
