Mesh Importing in CFX
I started a "General" file in CFX-Pre 13.0 I'm trying to analyze a compressor blade that I meshed using Pointwise. I successfully initialized my block in Pointwise and exported it as a .grd file. In CFX-Pre I right-clicked on mesh>import mesh>other and opened my .grd file. When I open the file I get the following message, "ERROR There was a problem importing the mesh from the requested file. The importing process reported the following problem: Unable to import mesh: Insufficient memory." The blade is very thin with some twisting geometry, and it has quite a few (non-symmetric) tetrahedral elements. I had to make a lot of nodes near the end to get a successful initialization. How do I solve this problem? Do I need to use less nodes so that the number of cells in my Pointwise block is lower? Thanks for the input!
