2D mesh export to FLUENT
I have made a 2D mesh in ICEM which I have succesfully exported to FLUENT. The simulation I intend to run will be axisymetric so the geometry must be oriented correctly in FLUENT so the axis of rotation is the x-axis in FLUENT. Despite setting this up to be the case in ICEM, when I export the mesh to FLUENT it is always incorrectly oriented with respect to (FLUENT's) x-axis.

I could rotate the geometry in FLUENT but as I am likely to have to export the mesh many times I would prefer not to have to do this.

Any help as to how I can get round this problem would be greaty appreciated.
