Hi all,

a hint: clear the cell types in star-cd before importing. Leave a fluid type.

another expensive hint: if you want baffles then simply don't connect the faces between volumes where the baffles are supposed to be. Star-CD will see this as a wall and not merge the vertices automatically. You can also set a boundary face in Gambit but it will only give you a boundary in star-cd and not a baffle.
