Summary0002459: OpenFOAM tools
DescriptionThis is a proposal to add a couple of features to ease the use of transferring Part-based geometry from FreeCAD to openFOAM. It would include basically:

- An OpenFOAM object that can
    - hold regions (groups of faces), and associate a tag/label and a color with each region
    - display the tags in the 3D view
    - offer graphical tools to select and manage the regions

- An alternative OBJ exporter that
    - scales everything in meters
    - exports the different regions as OBJ groups
Additional InformationDiscussion: http://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=13699

If I understand the report correctly, we have implemented an equivalent of this in most respects:

I think this is catered for by our CFD boundary conditions where groups of faces can be selected, assigned a boundary condition, and are coloured accordingly.

In the course of the present work interfacing with the cartesian meshers cfMesh and snappyHexMesh, this has been done but using stl rather than obj format.

@yorik does it matter That the alternative OBJ exporter is STL ?

not at all I guess... Actually the whole thing has changed, I got no more feedback from the openfoam people, and at the same time other people here on the FreeCAD side have started implementing much more interesting openFOAM tools, so I think this issue can be closed as irrelevant now.
