Error when importing mesh into CFX!
I designed the model in DEsignModeler then meshed it successfully using CFX-Mesh. When I import the meshed file (which has the extension .cmdb)in CFX-pre, I am getting an error.

The error is: "The file named "C:\Users\Faraaz\.cfx\CFX_TEMP_4948\" does not exist.

Unable to import the requested mesh: Type = "GTM_PARTIAL_DSDB". File = "C:\Users\Faraaz\Documents\FlagCFX\ db". Generic options = "-contact on -relative 0.001 -model_id 11". Specific options = "".

I do not understand why I am getting this error.

Please help!

Dear Farhaaz,

Why you go for this extension (.cmdb). I think you should use only (.msh) file extension while importing in PRE.
