A topoSetSource to convert a pointSet to a pointZone (and associated pointSet).


Operand Type Location
input pointSet $FOAM_CASE/constant/polyMesh/sets/<set>
output 1 pointSet $FOAM_CASE/constant/polyMesh/sets/<set>
output 2 pointZone $FOAM_CASE/constant/polyMesh/pointZones


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

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

    // Mandatory entries
    source      setToPointZone;
    set         <pointSetName>;

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: setToPointZone word yes -
set Name of input pointSet word yes -

Options for the action entry:

new      | Create a new pointZone from selected points of a pointSet
add      | Add selected points of a pointSet into this pointZone
subtract | Remove selected points of a pointSet from this pointZone
