[urgent] ICEM: from 2D to 3D using extrude
I followed the ICEM tutorial: 2D pipe junction and define several blocks to mesh a 2D geometry. No surface was created. After converting pre-mesh to unstructured mesh, I used extrude to get one-element thickness in z direction. Then in the output Tab, I choose "ANSYS CFX" solver and write input file. However, when i tried to import the mesh (.cfx5) in CFX-Pre, always an error, saying that no mesh exists in the requested file. I has been stucked for several days. Would anyone please help me? Thanks a lot.

Hi, my first suggestion: Did you define the ICEMCFD as a file format in CFX-Pre/Mesh_Import dialog ?

second: Has you checked the mesh by ICEMCFD mesh checking?Is it without problems? Zbynek

did the mesh is error free when checked in icem with check mesh? and second point when you export in icem is it doing the export without any errors?
