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!

you can reduce the number of mesh or change your computer,

Ohyeah. I figured out the problem and it was really stupid lol. I just had to make the "files of type"set to Pointwise.
