The license of the libccmio library is proprietary: Users wishing to make use of its functionality should contact CD-Adapco for possible download and terms of use.


4 Installation

Valid versions: OF version 15.png OF version 16.png

Using the following library, enables the convertor to read the latest starccm+ format (4.4): libccmio.

Download the compressed archive from the above post (awlibccmio), extract the two files, and run the "AllwmakeLibccmio" script. This will download and compile the libccmio library.

Then compile the optional ccm26ToFoam utility with "$FOAM_APP/utilities/mesh/conversion/Optional/Allwmake".

NOTE: ccm26ToFoam in the 1.6 version doesn't compile! You will have to get it from the git 1.6.x version! See here for more information.


Valid versions: OF version 17.png

The files for ccm26ToFoam have already been fixed in OpenFOAM 1.7. Simply compile the optional ccm26ToFoam utility with "$FOAM_APP/utilities/mesh/conversion/Optional/Allwmake".
