Hello to everybody.

I was used to mesh in ICEM using hexa mesh with blocking strategy and O grid. Then to export the resuls to CFX I used patran (.out) like output solver (with automatically creations of named boundaries activated). No problems with that.

Now, I changed to fluent 6.3.26 (budget cut), and I need to use output solver: Fluent_V6. However, when I use this option, when i visualize the final mesh in fluent the mesh has regions whenever there are blocking junctions (even in the interior of the body).

For the latest version of fluent I believe that there should be no problem since they have added an option called: "interior". But for version 6.3.26 there is not such an option and It assigns automatically a wall to it.

Any ideas? thanks in advance
