Hello,

I did some pressure drop optimisation in FLUENT and want to import the results to CAD. The solver only writes. msh files. Can I somehow convert them into some neutral CAD file?

Cheers,

Steffen

Ansys mesher can generate a parasolid file, but it only generated a part of the geometry. Its not that complicated a geometry, but seems it did not like it.
here is something

got it to work. Tolerance angle in the skinner needs to be bigger than 0 deg. Between 4 and 5 I got ok results.

seems that only works for the initial mesh. Otherwise its just point clouds.
