Default Import 3D models to GAMBIT from 3DStudio

Hi all.

I have done some models in 3DStudio: is there any way to import them to Gambit or this programa is only able to manage CAD files, like CATIA, SW, Pro/E?

If not, Is there any other meshing program that I can use with 3DStudio models (TGrid, etc.) in order to make analysis in Fluent with them?

Many thanks for advance!

Sounds like you should try the STL format and import that into ICEM CFD.

Wow xD! As simple as taking the Stereolithograph format STL? I must try it! I didn't know this format can be opened from gambit as an ICEM imput...

Thanks a lot Michael!

No worries. If you have problems in converting the files, you could try a work around with Rhinoceros. Seems to know more ore less every format. It has a free trial option. http://www.rhino3d.com/

I have never used this program.

Are you referring to open my 3DS files with Rhinoceros and save them in STL format with this program if I have problems while importing 3DS models as ICEM Input?

Or Rhinoceros is capable for open 3DS files and save as a file "readable" by gambit?

Thanx for your pacience and help.

Rhino can convert 3DS to STL (and many other formats) Please let me know if you succeed. Check out http://www.3d02.com/ for high quality 3D models - Michael Bo

Hey, that is a good 3DS models site; I knew it and it's very fine. But these days I'm stucked with an error in Fluent and I haven't tried nothing with Rhinoceros.

You can see my problem in a thread above (Title: Floating point and segmentation error...), but nobody replies it... I think that is because my harware is not compatible with fluent . I'm very frustrated...
