Default GRID import MACRO

My 2nd post on this topic, hopefully someone can help me. I need to upload my blade sections into ANSYS, they are in PLOT3D format. I was wondering if anyone has a macro or method to carry out this import.

Cheers, Vishwas

Hi Vishwas,

There is an unsupported Plot3D import in the CFX installation. To use it, pick the "User Import" format and under the Advanced Options tab specify the Exec Location as "C:/Program Files/ANSYS Inc/CFX/CFX-10.0/bin/winnt/ImportPlot3d.exe", substituting 'winnt' with the appropriate OS. You should be able to manually locate this in your installation. The only problem is that the Plot3D format does not include any 2D regions and until CFX-Pre 11.0 comes out, you will not be able to define these regions.

Your best bet would be to load the mesh in to the ICEM CFD mesh editor where you can define the 2D regions you need. You can then export it from ICEM CFD to CFX.

If you don't have ICEM CFD and your mesh is coming from another code, try using a different intermediate format such as CGNS or Patran Neutral or any other format the codes have in common.

Regards, Robin
