Did anyone worked on GID mesh import in OpenFoam??

I am finding it quite difficult to read the GID(*.msh) file in the OpenFoam, I am using the free version of GID software for mesh generation.
The problem is mesh generated doesn't indicate the boundary nodes so, i guess this could be one of the problem in the import of mesh in OpenFoam by fluentToMeshFoam(file extension *.msh is same in GID as well) command.

I Just need to know the suggestion from guys who are working on this. Thanks in advance.

It is the same extension, but not same format. So, you must create a Fluent problem and then export the mesh. Gid has a fluent problemtype, i guess that you must download to use.

Hello Friend,

In the free(evaluation) version of GiD, the only mesh export option is "GiD mesh export". But, ya finally i got an option to select our solver so that mesh export in GiD this time will give good result... Thanks for the idea buddy....
