Pre-Processing for Large Models

I simulate the cooling of an lectrical drive and I use the Ansys Company Products.
I generate the mesh for one wedge (one rotor pole) with around 1.2 Milion cells, after that I rotate the original wedge fiteen times in order to have a Model for a Quarter of a Mashine with 18 Milions but at that moment CFX-pre get so slow that I need to try other Programs. For example if I close CFX-pre, it takes around two hours for CFX-pre with my new PC to be opened again.
How fast would FoamX work with a 16 Milion Cells Model (12 Milion Hexahedre and 4 Milion Tetrahedre). ?

FoamX (used to be a java based Gui for OpenFOAM), but FoamX is not supported anymore (ended with OF1.5). FoamX for OpenFOAM 1.6
OpenFoam is not to strong in the in the preprocessing area, exept SnappyHexMesh (SHM)
therefore converters help in preprocessing area
or Openfoam -> StarCD/Fluent or CGNS
