Gridgen files to ICEM CFD

I have .gg (gridgen) files and I need to open it in ICEM CFD 13.0

Is it possible or if there's an alternative way to do it?

Hussein: I'd export CGNS files from Gridgen and import those into ICEM CFD.

(Actually, I'd never export a grid to ICEM for reasons that should be obvious. If there's something you need Gridgen to do, let me know.) ;-)

Thanks John for your reply.
For some reasons I have to work with ICEM CFD and I already have some full generated mesh files in Gridgen.
Is Theres a way I can export the geometry from Gridgen to ICEM?

Hussein: Reread my message. Export CGNS from Gridgen. Import CGNS to ICEM.

When I export the files to CGNS, the problem is that theres no connectors and I cant change in the geometry and as a result I cant do any changes in the mesh.
Thats what I meant by exporting the whole geometry.

Sorry, but I'm not aware of a way to get all of Gridgen's topology data out and into ICEM. Maybe ICEM has a Gridgen reader I don't know about.

did you find a way to import the Gridgen geometry into Ansys ICEM?
I am having the same problem. Only the .gg file is available, but I need in ICEM.
