How do I connect OpenFOAM to FEATool?

11 views (last 30 days)
The button for OpenFOAM's integrated solver in FEATool is grayed out. I have attached an image of this.
I have followed OpenFOAM's installation instructions here: I am using the trial version of FEATool and a macOS version 11.6 laptop. Is OpenFOAM not available in the trial version of FEATool? Both the FEniCS and SU2 embedded solvers work, just not OpenFOAM.

Unfortunately, OpenFOAM (or any) external solvers can not currently be detected or used with Docker. So for MacOS you would have to compile it from source, as there to my knowledge is no pre-compiled versions of OpenFOAM available for Msc. See also:
