hi .. I have a mesh created using gmsh and i am unable to convert into open foam.I followed the instruction in
The following procedure, the gmshFoam and Gmsh packages are assumed to be downloaded into:
  • The gmshFoam package: $WM_PROJECT_USER_DIR/applications/utilities ("I had created this directory manually, it was not there")
  • The Gmsh source package: $WM_PROJECT_INST_DIR/$WM_ARCH

Build the libraries and standalone utilities (YYYYMMDD denotes the release date of the gmshFoam package).$ cd $WM_PROJECT_USER_DIR/applications/utilities
$ tar -zxf gmshFoam-YYYYMMDD.tar.gz
$ ln -s gmshFoam-YYYYMMDD gmshFoam <<--- Necessary for gmshFoam to be recognized by FoamX
$ cd gmshFoam

Hi all,

I have the same problem:

polyMeshConversion/polyMeshConversion.C:231: error: ‘allFaces’ was not declared in this scope
polyMeshConversion/polyMeshConversion.C:264: error: ‘allPoints’ was not declared in this scope
make: *** [Make/linuxGccDPOpt/polyMeshConversion.o] Fehler 1

The other theads on this forum regarding this problem do not help solving it.

I hope, someone can explain the hint for dummies.

Thank you very much for your kind help.
