Hello, I am currently running a chtMultiRegionSimpleFoam case and the foamDataToFluent command is giving me data files for every save interval (0, 250, 500, etc.) however, only the data file for time '0' is fully output i.e. its output size is a couple hundred MBs (and opens in fluent), while the rest are ~50 bytes. My controldict and foamDataToFluentdict files are as follows:

/*--------------------------------*- C++ -*----------------------------------*\

| \\ / F ield | OpenFOAM: The Open Source CFD Toolbox |
| \\ / O peration | Version: 2.1.1 |
| \\ / A nd | Web: www.OpenFOAM.org |
| \\/ M anipulation | |
\*---------------------------------------------------------------------------*/
FoamFile
{
version 2.0;
format ascii;
class dictionary;
location "system";
object controlDict;
}
// * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * //

application chtMultiRegionSimpleFoam;

startFrom latestTime;

startTime 1;

stopAt endTime;

endTime 2500;

deltaT 1;

writeControl timeStep;

writeInterval 250;

purgeWrite 0;

writeFormat ascii;

writePrecision 6;

writeCompression off;

timeFormat general;

timePrecision 6;

runTimeModifiable true;

I have fiddled around with these, but to no avail. Any help would be appreciated!

Addtionally I am running 2.1.1

Regards,

Josh

The regions must each be converted separately.
