Hey everyone,
I am currently working on a somewhat 3-D rectangular geometry.I made it in DM and then sliced it using a YZ plane so as to form more than one body.Then I meshed each part separately in Ansys Mesher.

Mesh formed on each part is of decent quality.Now I want to rejoin all the parts to make the original single volume.

I heard that Gambit has an option of "Linking faces" to do this.
Can anyone please tell me what is its equivalent in Ansys Mesher?
Any help is appreciated.Thnx

no need to merge in Gambit, you can merge it in solver

Dear Prateek Anand

yes it is possible in fluent.

first read one mesh file then read 2nd file through as follows
mesh>>
zone>>
append cas file
then read ur file whatever you want.

best you can assign the interface or in ansys mesher you have contacts ,by that you can interface the bodies
I am not clear did you really want separate bodies,if you want a confirmal mesh please make it single volume inDm and take to mesher
