Files Preparation - Solid Region

For creating new mesh with snappyHexMesh it is recommended to create new OpenFOAM test case just with system, constant directory and with empty directory 0. Go to your user directory and create directories for the solid.

1 3 mkdir -p turbomachinery-CFD/meshFactory/c1/solid
1 3 cd turbomachinery-CFD/meshFactory/c1/solid
1 3 cp -r $WM_PROJECT_INST_DIR/Turbomachinery-CFD-XX.XX/
/tutorials/meshFactory/c1/solid/*     ./

The input .STL files are located in constant/triSurface and can be directly viewed in paraview:

The model dimensions are in millimeters, not yet converted to meters. STL files are presented, namely c-housing.stlouter_wall.stlrotor_inner_wall.stl, and stator_inner_wall.stl.

The initial idea is to have following solid mesh boundaries, namely rotor_inner_wall adjoining rotor region, stator_inner_wall adjoining stator region and outer_wall.
