Dear All,

I made a 3d mesh of a pipe in ICEM and want to track some point values via "monitors" in Fluent. Now I created points in ICEM and put each of them into a "part" with a different name. Back in Fluent none of these points appear in any "surfaces" box. How can I get single points from ICEM to fluent?

Thanks for any help!

Did you figure this out by chance? I'm trying to export surfaces to use in FLUENT as boundary conditions.

It's impossible to do that. Fluent won't read your points and curves. i tried before with a curve. i got help from Mr simon who forwarded my problem to a fluent expert.
See the thread below
Fluent skips parts i create in icem

This is is possible in ICEM.




However you cannot export the point and curves (3d) from ICEM to Fluent

I recently had to export a large set (100+) of geometry points from ICEM. A workaround that I found is to:

1) clear the log window
2)Use the point locator button (in the top toolbar) to select each point you want the coordinates for
3) the coordinates for each point show up in the log window as you click them. When you're done, save the log window to a file
