Exporting Ansa file as Fluent file
I did tetra volume mesh on 3D pipe bending with the help of Ansa... Then i exported it as fluent file (.msh file)... After that i imported it in fluent software. i got error as follows...


Error: Null Domain Pointer

Error Object: ()

Dear Ramesh

Have you tried to input back the mesh in ANSA?
Is there volume mesh, or have you output just the surface mesh?
Make sure thatwhen you make the output both Macros and FE-mod
as well as Volume flags are active and ALL is visible.
Then make Output visible

Hope this helps

hi Vangelis,
i did what u said..
That is i imported the .msh file in Ansa 13.1.2...
i had both shell and solid mesh
then i imported the same file into the Fluent i received the same error...
Pls suggest me what to do?

Hi Ramesh
Can you post a print screen of the fluent mesh
as read back in ANSA in MESH menu?

Thanks Ramesh

But I actually wanted to see the legend on the left
stating the number of elements.
Also this is not the mesh input back in ANSA
but the original one, as I can see the actual Perimeters of the Macros
