If your solver is supported it is also great for case setup... However, I think you will find that you still need to work with the text based dict files from time to time. I know those are intimidating at first, but it is not that bad really

Good luck!
hi gkarlen, i am new about Helyx-OS; but i have faced some issues about meshing my geometry.

I usually use Salome to create geometries and patches but it doesn't work at all when i try to charge them on Helyx.
but wouldn't it be possible to create the mesh on salome and import it directly into Helyx?
