Converting .msh to .dbs
Is it possible to convert a .msh FLUENT mesh to a .dbs GAMBIT file? Is there any software to do this?

I don't know if it is possible, but I have never succedded.
I think this is because the mesh file only contains information about nodes and connectivity (and the boundary conditions), but nothing about geometry (edges, faces, volumes).
At the time I did not want to lose any time over this, so I just started from scratch!

Import (file->import) the msh file into gambit as fluent 5/6 and save it as dbs, or save the cas file in fluent and import the cas into gambit.
