Hello everyone,

We bought Fluent and I noticed that there is also the possibility to mesh with Fluent, has this tool any advantage over the standard ANSYS Meshing tool.
I wonder if it is possible to reach better mesh than with ANSYS Meshing. Anyone has experience with Fluent Mesh, is it difficult to master?

Thanks

Hi djfanf,

Good question. To be honest I haven't used quite a lot Fluent Meshing. However, the meshes I have done using it has been of good quality.

From my personal point of view, I would highlight a couple of things:

- Give you more control over your cfd mesh in terms of elements and nodes. You have quite tools to diagnostic and improve surface meshes.

- The second point, very interesting (I think), is that from ANSYS 16.0 there is a beta version of Native Poly volume mesh generation method. That means you don't need to create a tetra mesh in Ansys Meshing or Fluent Meshing and then convert it to polyhedra in Fluent. So, you can save time.

Those would be a couple of points that come to mind now

Thank you for your answer FJSJ,

maybe can someone tell me how hard it is to master FLUENT Meshing in comparision to ANSYS Meshing?
I am wondering if it is worth to invest time to learn FLUENT Meshing because generally I am not really happy with the mesh quality I get with ANSYS Meshing.

I would not recommend you the fluent meshing. I would like to suggest you the ICEM CFD...

I agree with Far. I would go for ICEM instead of Fluent Meshing

Thanks for your answer.
Well I don't think that my company will spend some money for a new meshing software, i will go on meshing with ANSYS Meshing!

Hello,
I've just started to use Fluent Meshing. I realized that it is actually the new version of TGrid, but I have never used that before. So far I quite like it as it is scriptable and you have a broader control than with Ansys Meshing. But I have problems with understanding error messages.
Did you finally give it a try?

Ansys meshing is for newbie or the people who want to get very quick mesh for some preliminary results.

TGrid / ANSYS meshing : It is best for automobile.

ICEM CFD : Best for every thing

Hello,

no, I didn't give a try and won't probably, I just hope that I will convince my company to buy ICEM CFD in a near future

Fluent Meshing is actually developing very quickly and is a very sophisticated peice of software. This example mesh on Youtube was done a few years ago now

and the workflows and interface have been improved massively since then...
