I was provided a very good quality mesh in p3d format. It looks like I cannot add any parts to create boundary conditions which associate to the mesh. Is there anyway to do this? It will save me a lot of time by not having to re-create the mesh.

Thanks in advance!

The mesh comes in fine, the only problem is that it seems to be two parts. So I would like to create some parts and export it into fluent. I have made some parts but when I export they don't make it into fluent. I think it is because they are not related to the mesh at all...

ok, remember boundary condition means you have to select only 2d shells...
starting from here, in the outline tree, where you have part, right click, select new part, there you will be prompted to select the elements you want, type INLET in the name in then select the shell that you want to represent the inlet with...

That seems to work! I get some weird stuff in fluent though, it wants to convert some of the zones to 'shadow' zones. Any idea what that is about?
