CFX5/Ensight Gold
Hello All, We just got Ensight Gold, and I exported from CFX-Solver for Ensight, but I am unable to read it in Ensight. Perhaps some body is using Ensight and can help me out. Cheers

Re: CFX5/Ensight Gold
Hi Meri, We've no problem. Ensight never requires a license for readres. If Ensight's working, you can read. Tell me details if you still have the problem. Are you selecting .case file?

Re: CFX5/Ensight Gold

I'd recommend you start with the tutorials.

Re: CFX5/Ensight Gold
Hello Keano, I started by exporting from CFX5SOLVE an Ensight ouput, but they were *.dat not a case file. What am I missing ?

Re: CFX5/Ensight Gold
That's wrong output. Typical filename is the following.

* CFX5 result data. test_001.res

* EnSight Casefile test_001_ensight.s01 test_001_ensight.s02 ... test_001_ensight.v01 test_001_ensight.v02 ...

Procedure Tool > Export Set CFX5 result file. Set Export Type as EnSight Click Export button.

Re: CFX5/Ensight Gold
Thanks Keano, It seems for transient simulation each transient file would have to be exported to Ensight format, when I did the *.res, all I get is *.geom. But when I did individual transient file, I got the *.cas files

Re: CFX5/Ensight Gold
I've heard EnSight will support CFX *.res format in the near future. How about try this? I've not tried it yet.
