Exporting mesh to fluent
How does one export mesh from ICEM CFD to fluent. I tried doing it, created a .uns file but what to do with that file.

Thanx in advance

The .uns file is still ICEM CFD format. You need to do Output > Select Solver (Fluent) > Then write the output. It will create the .msh file to read into Fluent.

Im having dificulties with this as well. I can write the .msh file, but I get varying errors within FLUENT. How do you specify the interior/Fluid domains? I believe this may be the issue.
