Adding parts to Plot3D Mesh
I was provided a very good quality mesh in p3d format. It looks like I cannot add any parts to create boundary conditions which associate to the mesh. Is there anyway to do this? It will save me a lot of time by not having to re-create the mesh.

Thanks in advance!

ok, remember boundary condition means you have to select only 2d shells...
starting from here, in the outline tree, where you have part, right click, select new part, there you will be prompted to select the elements you want, type INLET in the name in then select the shell that you want to represent the inlet with...

you should get something like this to filter your selection, i always use the limit by curve or angle :

That seems to work! I get some weird stuff in fluent though, it wants to convert some of the zones to 'shadow' zones. Any idea what that is about?
