[ICEM] Export mesh for IDEAS solver
Good morning,

I have generated a (2D) mesh with Icem, and I would like to export it in the I-DEAS format.

I need 4 node groups, 3 are curves and the last one is a surface. They are correctly defined in ICEM.
However, when I export it with the 'write output' function, the groups are not correctly defined, and I've got only ONE group which corresponds to the surface group. In the output log, there still are 4 node groups.

Any ideas to cope with IDEAS ?

thanks a lot

Hello again,

So eventually I created a 3D mesh (which looks a bit dumb for an axisymetric problem, but whatever) and the mesh group creation seemed to work OK. Might be a bug with the 2D version perhaps ?
