Good Morning Everybody,

I have 2D simulation, i made the 2D Hexa Mesh in ICEM-CFD 11 to solve it
in Star-CD 4.06, but when i try to Export this mesh by selecting the solver
Star-CD 4.06 I receive this error Message ***
************************************************** **
Running ANSYS-ICEM CFD 11 Star- CD 4 interface vers11.0.1
Error exit This Interface only supports 3D Mesh

as you can read in the Message, you need a 3D mesh for STAR CD. So extrude the 2D Mesh in ICEM one cell layer and do the export again.

What if you export a STAR 3.26 readable mesh, read the mesh in STAR CD 3.26. Then if you create a mdl file, see what happens when you open the mdl file in STAR 4.06.

I not have tried this for 2D geometries, but have had to do something like this where I cannot go directly to STAR 4.06.

I guess that since STAR CD 4.0x was designed to read in CCM meshes, which includes polyhedral meshes, we often run into such problems when dealing with 2D geometries.
