freefoam-writeMeshObj(1) For mesh debugging: writes mesh as three separate OBJ files which can be viewed with e.g. javaview.


freefoam writeMeshObj [-latestTime] [-patchFaces] [-cellSet <cellSet name>] [-cell <cell label>] [-noZero] [-face <face label>] [-srcDoc] [-point <point label>] [-doc] [-time <time>] [-constant] [-parallel] [-faceSet <faceSet name>] [-case <dir>] [-help]


meshPoints_XXX.obj : all points and edges as lines. meshFaceCentres_XXX.obj : all face centres. meshCellCentres_XXX.obj : all cell centres.

patch_YYY_XXX.obj : all face centres of patch YYY

Optional: - patch faces (as polygons) : patchFaces_YYY_XXX.obj - non-manifold edges : patchEdges_YYY_XXX.obj


-face <face label>

Export face with specified label.


Also export patch faces.

-cell <cell label>

Export cell with specified label.

-point <point label>

Export point with specified label.

-cellSet <cellSet name>

Only apply to named cell set.

-faceSet <faceSet name>

Only apply to named face set.


Ignore timestep 0.


Include the constant directory.

-time <time>

Apply only to specific time.


Only apply to latest time step.

-case <dir>

Case directory.
