Problem in updating the mesh in Workbench
 
Hi all!

I'm a relatively new user in ANSYS.

I added the "Fluid Flow (FLUENT)" analysis system in workbench. I made a simple 2D geometry using DesignModeler, and then meshed it using the ANSYS mesher. After I finished the mesh, I pressed "Update Project" in the workbench window, and got the following two errors:
"The mesh exporter failed during translation. Please send your data to your support provider" and "Update of the mesh component in <proj name> failed. Error updating cell Mesh in system <proj name>".
Surely, at this stage I cannot proceed to the Fluent setup.

Strangely enough, when I saved the mesh as a *.msh file, and opened it in a separate project, I got no error, and was able to proceed to Fluent setup.

Is it something I should be worried about? How can I fix it in the original project using the "Fluid Flow (FLUENT)" analysis?

Have you ever had success?
 
Sorry, I am not sure where you went wrong, it is usually straight forward...

I suggest going thru at least one tutorial first. Once you have been successful once, even with a basic tutorial model, you should have a good chance of getting ahead with your real project...

If you still have issues, we can focus on what is special about the failing project...

Thanks for the reply!

I had done some tutorials, and never encountered such an issue. For now I'll keep working with the second method, saving a *.msh file, and opening a new project.

I have another question. The meshing application takes quite a long time (about 5-10 minutes) to mesh a simple, 2D mesh, with about 50000 nodes. In the future I will work on much more complicated, 3D geometries, and I wouldn't want each meshing trial to take hours.
How can I expedite the meshing process? Is there a way to use parallel CPU, similar to Fluent?

Those timings don't sound right... You may want to contact tech support. Maybe they can figure out what is wrong if they had the model...

Hi~ I encountered the same question with you today. I found out it was because my file directory contained some Chinese characters. So check your file directory, make sure it does not contain any special characters. Hope it is useful~

Hi I get the same error with you:
"The mesh file exporter failed during translation. Please send your data to your support provider."

I just want to learn how you saved the project with .msh extension
I saved the project at first as .meshdat automatically, there is no "save as" option in my ansys meshing (v.14.0), do you know any shortcuts?

Thanks,
idil

you could try File>Export and in the Save type as, change it to "fluent input file .msh" . I tried that, BUT i am still getting the same error message. Not too sure what is wrong.

Thanks, I realized that export button right after my post =)

Also, I figured out the error,
the problem was the file name. You should check the workbench file name: it shouldn't include space or other foreign characters. Try "save as". ( an example of a proper name that works: WGS-RXN-3d-project )

Thanks,
idil

Thank you, I had exactly the same problem but I' ve overcome it using not the local characters(Turkish characters in my case).

Thanks! I have worked it out by your help!:)

Be aware of Intersecting Bodies!
 
This error mostly returned while you have intersecting bodies in your problem geometry. just one of those bodies should be meshed and the other ones should be used as "Body of influence" at least in one "Sizing" feather.

I hope this could solve your problem.
Good Luck

Hi guys, the same problem with me. And i have no another foreign characters in directory of the file. But still cant load it into Fluent. Any ideas ?

Fixed : I have missed that there was a foreign character. And nw, it is OK.

I am having same problem. I have checked the file directory there are no files except geometry file. When i click generate mesh, the mesh will be generated and it shows the cell meshing cannot be updated to the file. Can anyone help me with this..

Hi,

I encountered a similar problem recently. You might need to refine you mesh.

Cheers

I encountered the same question with you today,but I found out in my fie directory don not contained some Chinese characters. Why?

Hi,

I encountered the same problem today, and I tried all the name changing solution that mention in this topic's post, but it couldn't solve my problem. I have no special character, even I tried "save as" option with different file name but it was not working.

So, maybe your solution is fine for my case, but I don't understand that how can I apply your solution.

Could you please explain it more specificly?

thanks,

hello gurkan!
did you found any solution? I have same problem...

gurkan March 12, 2015 11:59

No, I couldn't find any soluiton, but I seperated my volume different part so I thought maybe it cause the problem, so I changed the volume part. But my problem is not about the special character because I dont have any special character in file name
