Hi everybody,

Is there any possibility to create some of the file structure (template files) automatically? For example the fields for the variables some dictionary’s… There are a lot of solvers without tutorials, so you had to pick up the files from other solvertutorials and modify them this takes a lot of time. Is there no quicker way?

PS.: I use open Foam 1.7.1

Greetings Christoph_84,

I've never used it myself, but you can take a look at PyFoam:

I think I've read somewhere that PyFoam has scripts for helping set-up cases and that should only be the tip of the iceberg of what PyFoam can do!

Best regards,
