Hi everyone,

My project has a lot of parts and the naming convention is important to conserve while using it in Fluent. Currently, I am trying to export my mesh into a .msh file, but whenever I do the prefix "int_" gets added to all my parts that are set as interiors in my boundary conditions.

Is there any way to stop this?

Many thanks

Hi Eknight,

i don't know a way to stop this...

However, i guess there is a workaround. Open your .msh file in a text-editor. At the end of the file, there is line (0 "Zone Sections"). Below that, you find the boundary conditions and their names.Here you could fix the interior names.
Replacing all "interior int_" with "interior " in the .msh could be a simple solution (mind the spaces). It should work in binary and ascii format if you only replace below the zone sections line.

Best regards,
