Hi.

New to ICEM.

Created a 2D axisymmetry geometry on Solidworks and imported the IGES file to ICEM.

I created surface for the boundary and named them.
Created .msh file (convert to unstructured mesh ->select solver->write input)

The problem I am facing is when I use fluent3DMeshToFoam filename.msh, I get all parts except axis. I need this for my boundary as I have to mention in my 0 files boundaryField
Code:
axis
{
type         empty;
}

Any help would be appreciated.

I assume that has to do with 2d-elements being exported/associated or not. Out of the box I was able to find this: Problems with export 2D mesh from ICEM to FLUENT


In my 3d meshes, i always collect points and curves in one part, which I never see later in cfx.

Earlier I was using blockMeshDict file to make my geometry. But now I am trying to use ICEM.

I followed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVseZHD7TQU and was able to get the axis part working.

However, the second issue that I am currently facing is front and back wedge.
Below attached are 2 boundary files.
Left - from ICEM and Right - from blockMeshDict (works fine)
I tried following https://www.openfoam.com/documentati...oundaries.php:
renaming the boundaries (case sensitive)
defaultFaces
changing axis nFaces to 0

Error!


Any help???
