You can use FE Modeler (Included with Workbench) to import it (as unstructured hexahedral mesh). In FE Modeler, you would need to “Skin” the mesh first and then send the mesh and its new geometry to workbench…

Alternatively, you could use 12.0 with ICEM CFD and attach it thru the ICEM CFD back door, but that is more of a Beta approach…

Look on the ANSYS customer portal... Find a Version 12.0 FE Modeler tutorial about a crank shaft geometry. It goes thru the process of importing the mesh, "skinning" it and converting it to Bspline geometry... They even parametrize it, adjust it and output a Parasolid file.

Hi, I'm working with Ansys Workbench 12.0 design modeler, building geometries there. But I need to export these geometries to Gambit 2.4.6 for the meshing y to make a multiblock grid and then export the mesh to ansys fluent 12.0. is this possible?. can I to install Ansys gambit 2.4.6 with the ANSYS 12.0 12.0 together?

Yes, the would treat each-other as friends (not family). They need different license mangers, different installs, etc.

However, DM can write out a parasolid or iges file for Gambit to pick up...

Then Gambit would output a Fluent *.msh file that ANSYS Fluent 12.0 could pick up...

No problem.

But is there a reason you don't just want to mesh in ANSYS Meshing? Have you tried it? We are interested to know what gaps are preventing you from moving over.

If you used ANSYS Meshing, you would have a parametric and persistence advantage (without scripting hassles).
