Import Gridgen Mesh V15 to CFX 10
I have created a simple structured mesh of a 12x36x1 square duct in Gridgen with a small 2x2x1 additional duct to simulate a jet in cross flow. I meshed them as two blocks.

I am having trouble importing this into CFX. When I try to load the mesh file in CFX-pre it only gives me the options for importing in the drop down menu: CFX Mesh (gtm) CFX-Solver CFX-TASCflow CFX-BladeGenPlus CFX-4 ICEM CFD ANSYS

In the CFX-pre manual it says that CFX will import Pointwise Gridgen meshes. Am I missing something here?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Save your mesh as cfx5 mesh in Gridgen and try to import in cfx as cfx5 mesh.

Re: Import Gridgen Mesh V15 to CFX 10

you should have the following additional import options:

... CGNS Patran Neutral, IDEAS Universal, GridPro/az3000, NASTRAN, Pointwise GridGen, User Import

Are you able to scroll down the list to get your required option?

No I do not have those additional options. I will have to do more research into why that is!

But I was able to export it in the CFX-5 format today!

Thanks for the help, I really appreciate it!
