A topoSetPointSource to select points nearest to given points.


Operand Type Location
output pointSet $FOAM_CASE/constant/polyMesh/sets/<set>


Example of the nearestToPoint topoSet by using actions sub-dictionary in system/topoSetDict file:

    // Mandatory (inherited) entries
    name        <name>;
    type        pointSet;
    action      <action>;

    // Mandatory entries
    source      nearestToPoint;
        (<p1x> <p1y> <p1z>)
        (<p2x> <p2y> <p2z>)

where the entries mean:

Property Description Type Required Default
name Name of pointSet word yes -
type Type name: pointSet word yes -
action Action applied on points - see below word yes -
source Source name: nearestToPoint word yes -
points List of selection points vectorList yes -

Options for the action entry:

new      | Create a new pointSet from selected points
add      | Add selected points into this pointSet
