From mesh to geometry
Hallo to anyone. Does anyone know if it is possble to create a geometry and a blocking from one mesh file? I try to explain myself, before someone thinks I am drunk: I have one definition file from cfx and i wanna change some details in the geometry, but I manage only to see the mesh in icem, and not to work about it. And time is never enough to make all from the start...

Thank you in advance.

Re: From mesh to geometry

You can use the mesh editing functions in ICEM to change a mesh. Not sure whether you can change the blocking, I doubt it.

You can not change Blocking in mesh , But one thing what you can do is , You can export facets to geometry and them modify there only.

Re: From mesh to geometry
Assuming it is a block-structured mesh (not tets or a swept quad-paved mesh) - you can extract a blocking. Load the UNS file (block-structured mesh). File > Blocking > Load from Unstructured Mesh will extract a blocking file with node counts - but not distributions. Then you can modify the blocking. You can also do Edit > Mesh to Facets to extract a faceted geometry from the mesh.
