srobin11 is on a distinguished road

I just wonder can the mesh generated by icem cfd be readable in any other open source finite element solver like openfoam or etc. written in c++ ?

-mAx- will become famous soon enough
yes it should be.
If I remember, you can select your solver in ICEM for the mesh export.
So, selecting fluent solver may give you the possibility to use the fluentMeshToFoam or fluent3DMeshToFoam utilities for mesh conversion
