    Hi all,

    I found an intresting code (stlToGmsh) that takes an .stl file and makes a cartesian grid that you can open with gmsh but it is not able to create groups.
    Unfortunatly I'm not a programmer (I don't know nothing about it!) so I have some problems in using it.
    If someone is intresting here the link:

    Ciao

      Hi all,

      I have solved the problems of the cartesian mesh using snappyhexmesh.
      Changing some parameters it is possible to obtain a purely Cartesian mesh (cubic) or a mesh that snaps to the geometry using only hexa element (the mesher is fast and quite robust).
