Hi everybody!
I'm currently using ICEM CFD v10 on a rae2822 airfoil. I'm using a geometry imported from ICEM v11. I have imported it by using File>>Import Geometry>>STEP/IGESY>> my file *.stp. I had to select "Use version 5.1 step translator" to keep my geometrical scaling. But it seems that i have compatibility errors (i made the same work on a v11).

Does anyone knows how i can do a proper importation of a v11 geometry on a v10 Icem please??

Don't convert back to IGES... If you already have the ICEM CFD Version 11 Tetin file (*.tin), Just load that file in V11 and then go to File (menu) => Geometry => Save Geometry as version => Version 10 File...

But just out of curiosity, why are you going back to version 10?

So are you set then?

There is a text editor way you can fix the files without having 11.0 on hand to fix it for you. You just need to delete a line, I don't quite recall the details since I havn't needed 10.0 for a long time, but can try to dig it up if you need it. Send me the error message you got since that will help me remember.

I still recommend updating to 12.1.
