disappointing 5.7
Hello, IŽd like to seed a bit of controversy. Anyone, besides myself, thinks that the 5.7 version comes with even more bugs that the older 5.6? The release notes are almost as long as the manuals. A list with the problems that I had to import several 5.6 definition files would be endless. In addition, now you have to pay for the DES beta feature in 5.6. And more...

Anyone has remembered now that lengthly posting, one year ago, about the integration Ansys-CFX? Do we have begin to see the teeth to the fierce?

kind regards

But Post and Pre from CFX-5.7 is far more stable than in version 5.6. Albeit some problems that runs well in CFX-5.6 (in parallel mode) crashed in current version(also in parallel). But I think that 5.7 is step forward. Unlike ICEM 5.0 - step forward and two steps back. New GUI of ICEM simply does not have many critical commands.

Up to now I can`t find uncouple... In this case refinement seems to be little useless...(for some codes). And I can`t find Update Worst Block. Other commands I finally found. (In unusual places)
