Harpoon/CFX5
 
Does any one know how to export a mesh from Harpoon to CFX5 ? I created a mesh in Harpoon 1.4,but I when I choose export as CFX, I got a *.stl file which CFX cant't read

Hi,

Have a look at the import options in CFX-Pre, and the export options in Harpoon. Isn't it just a matter of find one format they both can handle?

Also you can import stl files into ICEM and convert them into a ICEM CFX mesh.

Hi, Oko and Glenn

Today I just got a trial version of Harpoon and took a quick look at the tutorial. It seems a nice meshing tool. I was just wondering how to define the inlet and outlet boundary in Harpoon if I want to generate volume mesh for a reactor. Could you please simply describe the procedures?

Thanks!

I have the same trial CD, mesh looks good but I am yet to export it to CFX5 nor can I read the *.stl file created into ICEM-CFD, perhaps some one can give away how to do it.

Hi,

What is the problem with importing STL files? I have done it, but not from Harpoon.

After import mesh/STL you will probably need to do a check mesh and allow it to generate the outer surface mesh on the volume elements. You then manually move the surface elements into a seperate family, then make different families for the boundary conditions.

Glen, Please be more specific abou 'do a check mesh', I am not sure I understand that part. Thanks.

The tutorial of Harpoon is too simple. Does Harpoon have additional tutorial materials?

Thanks!

Maybe Harpoon has a website or some publications.

Hi,

Look under Edit mesh/Check Mesh. It then shows a box, untick all the options and make sure you have "Uncovered faces" ticked and apply.

It then detects the uncovered faces, choose fix to automatically generate the surface mesh and choose a family to stick them into.
