I have an unstructured mesh in Gmsh and wish to get it in the .cgns format.

CGNS support for the program seems very tricky to turn on/get it working and so I was planning on using a converter to get around this problem. I was going to save the mesh as a plot3d file then use this converter (Plot3d to CGNS Translator) to make it into a cgns file.

However it seems the plot3d file is only for structured meshes. Does anyone know any other converters that may be useful or can suggest a different solution?
