Re: Preprocessing
Hi Rajuramiah,

CFX-Pre will accept a wide range of mesh formats so you can use just about any meshing package to generate a mesh for CFX. I have trialled Gridgen to generate meshes and it works fine, however I found ICEM better for what I was doing so we went that way instead. Most meshing packages will let you trial their software for a time to try it out. This way you can find out for yourself what is best for you.
