The new release of ENGYS’ Open-Source graphical user interface, HELYX-OS v2.3.0, provides both new and experienced users a fast and efficient interface to use OpenFOAM technology. The new release supports standard OpenFOAM® v2.4.0 and improves visualization capabilities and interaction with objects in the 3D viewer. In addition to the new OpenFOAM core compatibility and 3D visualization, HELYX-OS now supports:
- A new text interface for blockMeshDict to allow for user-created blockMeshDict files
- A new user-defined mesh graphical widget for easier creation of base meshes by automatically scaling the bounding box to the geometry with a click of a button
- A new graphical tool for extraction of feature refinement lines (eMesh files) in the GUI to enable improved snapping in standard snappyHexMesh
- A new “custom interface” for user-defined editing and addition of dictionary files and fields to allow entry of custom dictionary entries and boundary conditions not presently supported in HELYX-OS
For a Linux version of the HELYX-OS GUI, please visit the SourceForge project. ENGYS offers a Microsoft Windows version of both OpenFOAM® v2.4.0 and HELYX-OS to support customers only. All bug reports and feature requests are collected directly at the SourceForge project.
