STL file import to GAMBIT
Hey guys, I am trying to import an STL format geometry file in GAMBIT but it produces an error: 'Error encountered while reading the header information'. I have also tried to convert the file via the fe2ram command but it did not work either. Moreover does anyone know how to transform a STAR-CD format file (.cel) in FLUENT format?

Thanks a lot for your help I appreciate it

If you have problems with STL or other formats, try to read it into a CAD package to see what's wrong.

The file header is probably corrupt. Check the file again

I am getting the same error.

The header doesn't appear corrupted; what should it look like?

Thanks, Kevin
