Fluent/Gambit export to CAD
Does anyone know how to export the geometry information backwards from Fluent or Gambit to CAD systems, such like AutoCAD?

Re: Fluent/Gambit export to CAD
Since GAMBIT is based on the ACIS-format which, I was told, is used by most CAD-System you should be able to export an ACIS-File which is then read by your CAD-Programm.

I hope this helps.

Correct, both Gambit and AutoCAD are based on the ACIS geometry kernel. You can export an ACIS file from Gambit and import that into AutoCAD.

That is correct, but someone know how to export from Gambit to Pro/E?

Re: Fluent/Gambit export to CAD
Gambit 1.3, to be released in May, will have export of geometry in STEP, IGES, and Parasolid formats. STEP will be the best choice for Pro/E, as it supports solid models and is supported by Pro/E V20 and higher at no additional cost.
