ways to output a case file?
Hey Guys,

I have a .msh file with the from Icem with greater than a million volumes but I'm using an academic licence which only runs problems with about half that number. I have access to a high performance computer with a research licence but to make use of it I need to have a .cas file. When I try to open the .msh file in fluent it comes up with an error and I can't write the .cas file from there. I am unsure of what to do from there and any help would be appreciated greatly.

what error message you are getting? What is the difference between .msh and .cas file? .cas file = .msh file + boundary conditions + solver setting

The error message said the number of elements was too big for the licence I was using. I have since been able to sort out the problem though. I did it by using workbench as an intermediate step where I was able to adjust the licence settings and now I can open the the .msh file in fluent and export a .cas file after putting in the BCs and solver etc.
Thanks for your help.
