Error reading "U:\FLUENT\RAM_files\dp0\FFF\MECH\FFF.msh".

Error: This appears to be a surface mesh.
Surface meshes cannot be read under the /file/read-case functionality.


The above error appears when I click the setup cell in the work bench on ANSYS 13.0. I am new to ansys and I am trying to run fluent. My geometry and mesh both have check marks and see good to go.

Does anyone know what I need to do to fix this???? thanks

I've got the same problem in Ansys 12.
I'm using Gambit to build a grid.

Does anyone know how to overcome this problem?

Please make sure that the mesh is a solid mesh with fluid volumes and not just a surface mesh. I think the error is about loading just the surface mesh..

Yes, it looks like this. I rebuild mesh and no error appeared.
Thanx.

stuart23 will become famous soon enough
Fluent can solve 2D cases, try opening Fluent directly by going to Start>Ansys 13.0>Fluid Dynamics>FLUENT and make sure you select 2D in the launcher
