1 Name

mirrorMesh - Mirrors a mesh around a given plane.

Valid versions: OF Version 21.png

2 Synopsis

mirrorMesh [OPTIONS]

3 Description

Mirrors a mesh around a given plane specified in the dictionary system/mirrorMeshDict. The example shipped with the source code (in $FOAM_UTILITIES/mesh/manipulation/mirrorMesh/mirroMeshDict) is reproduced below.

-parallel

Run the utility in parallel

-roots "(DIR1 [...DIRN])"

Directories through which the data are distributed

-case DIR

Execute the command on the case directory DIR. If not provided, use the current directory

-noFunctionObjects

Skip the execution of the functionObjects

-help

Display the help and exit

This utility is used in the following tutorials:
