Mesh and geometry import in cfx-pre
 
Hello,

I have made a mesh in Gambit and I would like to import it in cfx-pre. I tried exporting from Gambit both with the Ansys and the CGNS format, as is suggested on some messages in this forum. The problem is that when I import the mesh in CFX-PRE 10.0 all the information about the geometry is lost (I am not able to select the faces for example). Is there a way to import the geometry information in CFX-PRE?

Thanks Francesco

I am also doing similar kind of thing so what I do in my case is to make a mesh in gambit it is a 2D mesh and then converting that mesh from infot foam format and then converting the foam mesh to 3D mesh now 2D mesh is converted into 3D mesh. Now I am improting that mesh in tgrid and exporting it in the format of ptran and then I am able to see all the boundary cndition and mesh proerly in CFX-PRE.

I hop it helps you Q

I cannot test this as I am at home at the moment, but I thought CFX-Pre could import gambit msh files.

use turbomode and import mesh for as many components as you want.

it seems that you have scaling problem. Check the units. All meshes are there but you can not see them due to scaling problem.
