link Star-ccm and matlab
I'm a new member in this forum, and i hope to write in the right section...
i have a problem with Star-ccm, i have to open Star from Matlab and then run a macro already created...
Can someone help me?

This is how you run a macro from the command line on an existing sim file:


starccm+ mySimFile.sim -batch "..\myotherpath\"
and on a new (empty) sim file, I think it's:


starccm+ -new -batch "..\myotherpath\"
You can run these from Matlab as shell commands.

thanks for your answer....
it works fine...
i knew the shell function but i thought it could be used only for .exe files...

starccm+ is indeed an executable... The full filename is "starccm+.exe".

Glad it worked.
