mh...I see...try to go back to pro-surf and run a check. You should get an error message if surfaces are self intersecting. You could have to delete and recreate/retrim some of them.

there is never an error message

i have tried to eliminate surfaces and tried to merge surface or curves but nothing has gone right in this case

to me tutorial 3 also has the same problem

can there be something wrong with the version i have installed
4.06
4.08
both have the same problem

also i am trying to link user coding with star CD but i am unable to do so

i have installed MS Visual Studio 2005, then Intel Fortran compiler 11 and then SDK for windows server 2008
the messege is always lib.exe can not find and C fortran file does not contain lib.exe

are these problems inter-connected

please guide me
thanks

i want to add to the previous statement that there is never an error message when i check self intersecting surface

the program stops abruptly and system is halted and i need to use Task manager to end the program

Are you using Microsoft for your OS? I was never able to get version 4.08 to run in Windows (did not try 4.06) and CD-adapco tech support could not help me. Finally used virtual box and installed LINUX and it ran ok.

For FORTRAN compilers I think it is required to use the ABSOFT compiler up until version 4.12, then you must use INTEL.

Believe it or not, but we had to buy ours from CD-adapco. It turns out that STAR is not compatible with the latest version of ABSOFT FORTRAN. I don't know if you are personal (student) or commerical user, but STAR version 4.12 uses the intel FORTRAN compiler. So, I guess your choice is upgrade STAR-CD or downgrade your versio of FORTRAN.

The address to download version 12 is:

https://support.cd-adapco.com/faces/...te=9ypro71kd_4

This requires a user name and login, but if you are using it through your university, they should be able to provide it for you. Be sure to install everything, because it uses the latest flexlm license server to (the old license still works).

CD-adapco has a program in the US for students to get their software for free:

http://www.cd-adapco.com/academic/university.html

If you are not in the US I have no advice.

Even in South Korea, the local agent encourages university use. Ask your IT people to contact them. Its almost for sure available to universities at an attractive price
