Default [urgent] ICEM: from 2D to 3D using extrude
Posts: n/a
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
