CfdOF Solver Fatal Error: Unable to find mesh in directory ../meshCase

Post by marolas »

Hello there,

First of all, I work in a Windows 10 environment.

I have a problem when running the solver process in CfdOF in FreeCAD: When all is set and done, and mesh is written in temp folder, the solver finishes with a Fatal Error stating: Fatal error: Unable to find mesh in directory ../meshCase

As I don't use Linux, but Windows, this /meshCase directory I assume is referring to a Linux or Ubuntu based environment.

What can I do to solve this issue?

Below I will attach some important info to help.

This usually indicates that you are trying to run the solver before the mesher has been run. Are you sure that you not only wrote the mesh case, but ran the mesher as well?

Hi Oliver,

Thanks for your reply.

Truth be told, it seemed that the problem was just that... I just wasn't following the steps in the right order.

Thanks again for your help.

Marc.
