Thanks for the report. We had moved the working directory setting to the analysis object but had neglected to remove it from the solver object. It should be fixed now. The setting in the analysis object now affects both the meshing and solver location.Syres wrote: ↑Wed Aug 29, 2018 8:42 amHi,
I updated the CFDOf Workbench at approx. 19:30 British Summertime last night having noticed some changes of late. I'm just renewing my (lack of) skills with Tutorial 2 Porous Baffle using GMSH. I'm happy that all had gone as expected until the time to carry out the Solving Stage. I like to keep each case in it's own directory and therefore always create a new folder, browse and select it in the Working Dir field so there's no typo's and save the FreeCAD file at this stage. The example screenshot shows how it looks before I launch the Analysis Control Task Panel to write the case.
Now I double click OpenFOAM in the tree to be able to Write and Solve the case and now the Working Dir has changed to my Default Output Directory as set in CFD Preferences page, as per screenshot below including Report View output.
Please note the case is written and the solver runs fine but it's just that if I forget it could overwrite a previous case due to the issue which I'm sure isn't by design. I was under the belief that the Default Output Directory would only be used if the Working Dir had been left blank by the user but by all means correct me if I'm mistaken.
I've attached my FreeCAD file if it's of any use and I'm using the following version:
