Hi,
I'm trying to convert fluent 3D mesh to OF, and I'm using fluent3DMeshToFOAM command(which I used it for my previous mesh converting) but I face following error:

--> FOAM Warning : Found unknown block of type: "3010"
on line 14


--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
Do not understand characters:
on line 15

From function fluentMeshToFoam::lexer
in file fluent3DMeshToFoam.L at line 748.

FOAM exiting

could you please help me?

I converted other meshed geometries from Ansys workbench to OF. they are fine, and I did the same for new file, but it did not work.

I've got exactly the same problem. Did you solved it?
I also tried dos2unix on the .msh file but it returns:
dos2unix: Skipping binary file FFF.1.msh

Any suggestion on the source of the conversion error?

@supercolli
It seems to me that your .msh file is written as a binary, not ASCII file.
While saving/exporting you should probably uncheck "write binary files" option or change preferences somewhere else (e.g. in Tools in Ansys Mesher).
