Hi everyone,

Does somebody know if it is possible to import .dbs files (generated in Gambit) using ICEM. I no longer have access to Gambit, but would like to use some grids stored as .dbs (I don't have them in .msh format unfortunately)

I am told that those files actually contain the instructions for Gambit to build your mesh (rather than the mesh its self). So only Gambit can do anything with them.

ICEM CFD (or any other tool) can not read those...

Just a suggestion, but maybe you can post the dbs file and have someone with gambit convert it to a .msh?

Hi!

I just recieved two .dbs files which I am not able to open. I do not have Gambit, only ICEM.

Would anyone mind converting these files into .msh using Gambit?

Regards
Christoffer
