I'm moving from CFX to Fluent recently (much faster for the work I'm doing). One of my favorite parts of CFX was having .ccl files, where I could simply open any mesh, assign the correct surface names, and then drop in the .ccl file to set all the correct boundary conditions and solution settings. I have dozens of .ccl files for the common cases that I run with.

Is there something similar to this in Fluent? I feel like it's a fairly simple thing that is incredibly useful.


Note the .ccl file doesn't include the mesh, and can therefore be applied onto whatever various geometries I'm dealing with.

Edit: Other thing that is incredibly useful to have in "settings" files are expression/report definitions. I'm about to spend 15 minutes writing up something I've already done, which is quite annoying.
