Is it possible to use a mesh created by Gambit in CFX ?

Re: Gambit/CFX
Yes, if you are using ICEM CFD with CFX. YOu can read the GAMBIT mesh into ICEM and write out a mesh to be read into CFX Pre.

May I ask what the export type should be in Gambit ? Thanks!

Icem 5.1 is capable to read a Fluent mesh (.msh). As far as I know, Icem 5.0 should also have this feature (at least you can find it as a mesh import option). Unfortunately, it does not work in that version... gives you a hint how well they test their software.

Maybe another idea: Gambit can export a mesh to read into Ansys and CFX should be able to read the same type.

hope this helps, good luck!

Yes, I try to use the Ansys format and it works. Thanks!
