Hi, I am a new member of this forum and also a new user of CFD simulation program.
Said that, I have a problem, as the title says, during the export form ICEM CFD 15.0, to Fluent 15.0, it gives me this error: "The mesh file exporter does not support overlapping geometry in Contact Regions. Please resolve the issue and try again.".
The geometry is an architecture, with doors and windows, do you know how can I fix this problem? If you need, I can send you some screenshot of the geometry and the mesh, so the problem could be more clear.

Thank you.

What CAD software did you made your geometry in? Looks like a poor geometry which has overlapping in contact regions, this error talks for itself...you need to check you geometry for errors. you can do this in design modeler.

How do I check the errors in design modeler? I've done the geometry in autocad

how complex is your geometry, probably redo it in solidworks or design modeler itself if you can, just find it in the tools man, there will be repair options in design modeler, use them... or post your geometry here, pictures if you can

Sorry, I tried to use the repair tools, but it says to me "the model size is out of rage" to almost all of the repair tools. Then if I try to see where those errors are, it says to me with a red message "conversion of body in design modeler format failed".
I also tried to use the interference check tool (the one in beta), but it doesn't do anything.
Could it be the origin of the export problem?

its self explanatory, use a diff package use solidworks
