Default Periodicity Setting ICEM for CFX

Hi all,

I am facing problems when importing my ICEM mesh to CFX. (14.0)

In ICEM I wanted to mesh a third of a tube to take advantage of its symmetry. So I used "Global Mesh Parameters -> Set Up Periodicity" and chose the values for "Base", "Axis 0 0 1" and "Angle 120".

Computing Mesh causes no problems also regarding the Boundary Layers I added.

As usual I exported the mesh as *.cfx5 and imported it in CFX. (See Screenshot below)

As you can see the Prism Layer is not connected anymore to the Fluid Region. Also a new Region was "randomly" created in CFX-Pre named "CARTFACES".
The Symmetry Planes were reduced to the part of the Boundary Layer.

I think I miss some steps in ICEM before writing the *.cfx5 file.
Could someone please give me a hint?

Thanks in advace,
