Blender, engrid windows x64

I am struggling with the version of Blender for windows X64. I created a sphere inside a box (volume domain). The box was splitted in inlet, outlet, and so on ..... I found that there is no option to export in Engrid (*.bgec). Does anybody found the same problem? How can I work around?

Thank you very much!

Greetings cfdivan,

If you used the installer for enGrid 1.4.0 or 1.4.x, then in the "start menu -> programs -> enGrid" you should see an option for "Browse Blender scripts" or something like that.
Then follow the add-on installation instructions provided at Blender's wiki, for installing each of the two scripts, one at a time:

Best regards,

Hi Bruno,

Thank you very much for your reply.

I already checked that the "Browse Blender scripts" is there. I opened with Notepad and I was able to see a bunch of the python scripts. Then I opened the blender and tried to follow the recommendations but i did not managed to find the tab "Add_on" on my Blender.

There is somethng wrong with the installation or there is a trick to see this Add_on tab?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Bruno,

I found that this problem is related with the version of blender. In 2.64a version I was able to find the Add_on tab and the script was installed. For 2.49b I was not able to find this tab...and i got no clue why. I will test the 2.49b and the i will post.

Thank you very much for your support.

Hi cfdivan,

Since you're working on Windows and in Blender 2.49b: go into Blender's folder and create the sub-folder structure ".blender\scripts" and place the respective scripts inside that folder. It's the easiest way to install them on 2.49b.

Best regards,

Hi Bruno,

Thank you very much for your help. I will setup the Blender 2.49b as well.
