Importing Patran mesh into Gambit
We've got a mesh that was created in CATIA, then exported to Patran as a .dat file. We are now trying to get this mesh from Patran into Gambit. The Fluent site says you can import Patran files, and in Gambit it asks for a "Neutral" file (.neu), but we can't get Patran to produce this.

Has anyone successfully imported a mesh from Patran (or CATIA!) into Gambit?

Thanks, Trac

Re: Importing Patran mesh into Gambit
I'm importing Patran meshes to Gambit/Fluent with out any problem. If you can create a neutral file (with either *.out or *.neu name). Just use import option to read this patran neutral file to get the mesh there.
