3D External Flow Field exported for flight simulation?

Got a converged external flow... can this data be exported into some useful format for a flight sim?

Transforming the simulation results into a format that is compatible with the flight simulation program is usually required in order to export a 3D external flow field for flight simulation. The following general actions are something to think about:

Post-Processing Applications:

To evaluate and visualize the results, use the post-processing software that comes with your computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation program.
Formats for Exporting Data:

Verify whether you can export results in popular flight simulation formats using your CFD software. Common file formats are VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language), OBJ (Wavefront), and STL (Stereolithography).
Converting Meshes:

Particular mesh formats are frequently used in flight simulation software. You may need to transform the mesh your CFD simulation produces if it isn't directly compatible with your flight simulation program. Mesh conversion programs and tools like Blender could be helpful.
Combining Flight Simulator Software:
