Import a mesh generated by I-DEAS or Salome [1] to OpenFOAM.

1. export the UNV file from I-DEAS or Salome (Module Mesh -> File/Export/UNV file)

2. create a new case with foamX: Case Browser -> right click -> Create Case

3. Convert the mesh file to openFoam: $ ideasUnvToFoam <root> <caseName> (Path) <meshFile>

example: ideasUnvToFoam . testunvconvert /home/foam/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.4.1/applications/utilities/mesh/conversion/ideasUnvToFoam/unv/face_groups_Cubit.unv
