Unable to import the file in Gambit - urgent
 
After meshing, setting bundart condition,etc, I export the file and it happens but when I try to import it again in gambit, it gives me error : Error reading number of points per curve and number of curves. Please help as I am stuck in my work.

Thanks in advance

Are you doing everything in Gambit? Are you opening the correct file?

Did it open in Fluent?

and you did FILE -> OPEN..not IMPORT, right? If I remember correctly, the file name should be at the bottom in the FILE heading - if you click on FILE and look at the bottom of the list of options your recent file should be there.

Yes I am able to open file in fluent.

I tried to import as well as open but it is not working either way.

Did you try opening your journal file?..if you open that and let it rebuild you should get your model back. It is a bit complicated at first, but it is not too difficult once you get the hang of it.

Re: Unable to import the file in Gambit - urgent
 
you can open a journal file from one of the headings at the top of Gambit. I dont have Gambit in front of me. then, you have a choice of editing the file or not. You just want to rebuild..you can clean it up automatically too. Journal files are really nice to understand, because they help you manipulate the gambit file without having to redraw the whole thing. But, like I said, it takes a little practice.
