Hi Pradeep,

Have you set the environment variable CFX5_EXPORT_CGNS_TECPLOT=1 ?? If not, amend it and try exporting the file again.

Cheers

Paul

Hi Pradeep,

As far as I know Tecplot8 did support CGNS format but it required downloading an add-on. See this old copy of contours magazine: http://www.tecplot.com/showcase/cont.../article02.htm

To set the environment variable if you're using windows goto Start > Control Panel > System > Advanced > Environment Variables, if you're using linux/unix then you can set it manually or add it to your profile as required.

Cheers

Paul
