In addition to the officially supported tools (especially paraFoam) there is a number of other software that make life with OpenFOAM easier.

1 CAE-Linux

CAELinux-Homepage

A LiveDVD full of Computer-Aided-Engineering Software.

Including free CAD-Programms, pre-/post processor and finite element solvers.

Very well for a first one try.

2 Pre-Processors

For people who need a bit more complicated grids (of course you can always do it with blockMesh.

Very good overview of free and commercial mesh generators.

2.1 NETGEN

Netgen is an automatic 3d tetrahedral mesh generator.

It accepts input from STL, IGES and STEP file format from CAD.

2.2 Salome

Salome-Homepage

Imput format from CAD, IGES and STEP, supported.

Converting UNV file format to OpenFOAM search for "UNV" in the OpenFOAM Message Board [1]

3 Post-Processors

Looking at your results in many colorful ways.

3.1 OpenDX

The mighty OpenDX is for those who think that Paraview is too simple (and not powerful enough).
