Hi,

I managed to use starccm+ volume meshes in fluent. I do it the following way:
a) Export the starccm+ volume mesh using
File -> Export ...
Select "Mesh only" and "Files of Type CD-adapco CCM files (*.ccm)"

b) Use OpenFOAM's conversion tool "ccm26ToFoam" to create an OpenFOAM mesh

c) Use OpenFOAM's conversion tool "foamMeshToFluent" to convert the OpenFOAM mesh to the fluent format.

I tried that yesterday but I obtained a mesh with some negative volume cells in FLuent, I checked my meshes in Star and OF but there were no negative volume cells, do you know how I can fix that?

Sorry, I don't know how to fix that. I didn't get any negative volumes, but I must admit that my meshes where rather simple. Anyway, how many negative volumes did you get? Just a few or a lot?
