Currently, there is no Ansys converter because I could not get hold of the detailed mesh file format information. Also, if I remember correctly, there were some issues with defining boundary patches.

Overall, I would say it's about a day's work. Do you have all the info and how badly do you need this? Is there an option of going through some of the other mesh formats that are already supported?

If you need it urgently, then the game is different :-)

Have fun,

Here is a good link for documentation of the ANSYS cards.

For files generated from ANSYS with the command cdwrite you should clarify whether Blocked or Unblocked format is used.
