CFD Post crashed
 
I'm experiencing a weird problem in ANSYS CFD Post. I've ran my simulation in Fluent and now I've transferred to the data files to CFD Post. Apparently, it wont load and keeps crashing. I'm assuming this is because the data file is too big ( about 2 gigabytes). If this is the case, how can I overcome this problem. If it can run in fluent, surely it can run in ANSYS-related products. Any tips?

the console should be giving you some error text.

What type of hardware are you trying to open it on? how much memory?

CFD-Post is fairly memory friendly with its dynamic loading of variables. If you starting doing turbo vars on 15+ million nodes, then it starts to get memory hungry.
